Hugely Competitive Betting Market For The Plate

As always, the Galway Plate has attracted runners from the best yards in Ireland and it is Gordon Elliott and Willie Mullins who dominate the list.

Despite that, it is Henry De Bromhead who has the likely favourite with Balko Des Flos set to start a warm order for Gigginstown. Davy Russell will be on the horse who was last seen running a decent race at the Punchestown Festival, and he has been aimed at this race ever since by all accounts.

He looks to be well treated and with a master trainer like De Bromhead on his side, he is the one to beat at 8/1 with Paddy Power.com.

Shaneshill (10/1) looks the first string for Willie Mullins with Ruby Walsh on-board, and he is a high class animal by any standard. 2nd in a RSA Chase, he was last seen finishing 3rd in the French Champion Hurdle, and he has to be a contender this week.

Lord Scoundrel (14/1) won this race last year and must be respected but it is a massive ask to repeat with 11lbs more on his back, whilst Road To Riches (16/1) would be in with a chance on his classy best but he has struggled of late and is hard to fancy with any certainty.

Sandymount The One

Jessica Harrington has been sweeping all before her over jumps and on the flat in 2017, and she has two good chances in this one. Cheltenham Festival winner Rock The World (20/1) is a player for each-way punters, whilst Sandymount Duke is comes into this one off of the back of a three wins.

The 8YO won the Galway Plate Trial off of 153 at Down Royal, and off of just 2lbs more, he has to be a contender at 12/1 with bet365, and given the form of the trainer, he will be carrying our money on Wednesday evening.
