Racing Guide: Tuesday 8th October

Today's pointers come from Galway.
Today's pointers come from Galway.

Our free racing guide returns, and provides you with four things to look out for at Galway this afternoon...

1. Keep an eye on Kelly at Galway

Pat Kelly's Craughwell yard is synonymous with success at Galway races, and it’s little surprise to see Presenting Percy’s trainer well-represented on today’s card at his local venue. He takes a team of six the short journey to the Ballybrit track, including 10-year-old hurdler Kansas Kid, who goes in the 14.35 race. Lightly-raced for his age, this horse was a beaten favourite at Roscommon eight days ago, but has been running consistently well and has the assistance of crack conditional jockey Darragh O’Keeffe for the first time.

2. O'Brien can keep switching things up

There can be few more versatile trainers than Joseph O'Brien, who on Saturday saddled Iridessa to be third in the Group 1 Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket, before 24 hours later it was the turn of his Speak In Colours to fill the same position in Longchamp's Group 1 Prix de la Foret. Switching codes, he runs Anything Will Do in the 15.10 Galway, a rated novice hurdle, in which the four-year-old - who popped up recently with a 16/1 Listowel maiden hurdle victory - faces eight rivals.

3. Elliott looks to have plenty of ammunition

The 15.40 Galway looks a fair chance for the Gordon Elliott-trained Gun Digger to get back in the groove off the back of a 169 day absence. Now a seven-year-old, he won plenty of admirers with a slick win in a Leopardstown beginners' chase at Christmas time, after which a fall at the Cheltenham Festival and a tame effort in the Irish National saw his season end with a whimper. This looks an ideal stage for him to regain his mojo.

4. The Coddfather is back again

The perennial 'go to' man in bumpers, 'The Coddfather' Jamie Codd is at Galway today to partner Elusive Rebeldom in the concluding National Hunt flat race at 17.20. He rode a winner at Gowran Park on Friday, and will be looking for continued success aboard this Elusive Pimpernel gelding, a horse on whom he was a beaten odds-on favourite at Ballinrobe last month.
