Plenty has happened since I last updated you including getting over a chest infection. Anyway, I had a nice trip over for Royal Ascot and also have had a nice little family break in Spain. Things are back to normal now and I’m really looking forward to the seven days of the Galway Festival. It’s such a great meeting and there’s a great carnival-like atmosphere. I’ve got a couple of rides on the opening day…MONDAYGALWAY FESTIVALCOUNT SIMON (5.20pm)The application of cheekpieces made the difference for this fella when he won at Downpatrick for me back in June. He’s very consistent and I’m hoping he can go well and the addition of blinkers for the first time might help him a a bit too. He ran well enough the last day, but will need to step up if he is to beat the Mullins pair who look pretty strong opposition. It’s good to see Ruby (Walsh) back in the saddle and he looks to have a leading chance on Easy Game who was seriously impressive on his stable debut at Killarney two weeks ago. I finished a fair way behind him that day and that was a smart performance.ANGE D’OR JAVILEX (5.55pm)Another ride for Gordon (Elliott) who has his team in good order now after a bit of a quiet spell. Ange D’Or Javilex has his first start for his new yard here after 581 days so it would be some training performance if he could hit the ground running. I haven’t sat on him at home and the form book says he has a fair bit to do. I did ride him a couple of times in his younger days and he is on a workable mark if returning to his best, but that’s a big ask. Charles Byrnes’ Viking Hoard was really impressive the last day and looks the one to beat if the handicapper hasn’t been too tough on him.DAVYlast_img
