There promises to be plenty of quality action across both codes next week at the Galway Races Summer Festival and Glorious Goodwood.

Speaking on the latest episode of our From The Horse’s Mouth podcast, Paddy’s resident jockey-turned-pundit Ruby Walsh and ace tipster Rory Delargy revealed some antepost fancies for the two meetings.

Ruby Walsh:

Galway Monday 18:40 – Echoes In Rain

Echoes In Rain ran reasonably on the flat for the first time in a while at the Curragh in May. She has a big chance.

Galway Wednesday 18:40 – El Barra

El Barra won the right race at Punchestown in April, which is a great trial for the Galway Plate. I’d be looking to ride him if I was still a jockey!

Rory Delargy:

Galway Wednesday 18:40 – Cape Gentleman

I’d be interested if Cape Gentleman‘s going for the Galway Plate as he must go right handed so there’s limited targets. I’d have thought this might be a long-term plan for Emmet Mullins but in the absence of any information it’s hard to gauge if he gets chalked up.

Goodwood Saturday 15:20 – Summerghand

Summerghand was midfield in the race last year but won it the year before that. He’s 8lbs lower than when he scored two years ago and ran well to get some each-way money in the Wokingham last time out. He’ll be better off back at Goodwood and has a tremendous record mid-summer over 6f. He’s got a lot going for him.
