Ruby Walsh joined Paddy Power and Paddy Desmond on a bonus From The Horse’s Mouth podcast earlier this week to take a look at the big races at the Galway Summer Festival and Glorious Goodwood.
We’ve got the Sussex Stakes and the Galway Plate to look forward to on Wednesday so let’s find out who Ruby fancies.
Night On Earth made his debut at Windsor on July 6 but a week later he absolutely bombed home over 5f and won at Galway, improving from his first start, so I’d take a chance on him.
I’m a Siskin fan, always have been. Other than the middle part he’s blemish free. I know Kameko was good in the English 2,000 Guineas, didn’t quite stay in The Derby.
Mohaather was brilliant at Ascot in his last start, that was a group 2 level. This is up to the top now against three years olds, I just think Siskin is the one. He’s all speed and the track will suit him.
Jon Snow (now a non runner) has ultimately been disappointing over hurdles and maybe two-and-a-half might bring some improvement in him but I thought Telmesomethinggirl bolted in at Roscommon and I think she can improve for that day.
Easy Game is the shortest odds of Willie Mullins’ and his form is rock solid. As a result of winning recent races, he is ranked at 154 which might just be his maximum.
Looking at Willie’s other horses I’d say Royal Rendezvous is well progressed. He’s 146 and I would think at those odds he’s a good each-way price. Like Easy Game he has form which should help him.
I think going up in trip will really suit. He won two-and-a-half miles at Naas going left-handed and he’s definitely a better horse going right-handed.
