Monday Racing - Galway

The Galway Festival begins on Monday and we've been through the card to pick out some interesting tips for you.

We're skipping over the opening race because the favourite looks likely to be the star and his odds are extremely unappealing. In the 17:45, though, the handicap has only given 9lb difference between top and bottom, leaving the race looking quite wide open to our eyes.

The favourite is Camlann, a recent Flat handicap winner, but our eye is drawn a little further down the listings. Dixie Highway has won his last two hurdles races and has kept his hand in on the flat too, and we think he might come through as a surprise turn in this race too.

Camlann is well worth a look, but at the longer odds of 9/1 available at SkyBet we fancy Dixie Highway in this one.

Following on from that, the 18:15 is a race that has been absolutely dominated by Dermot Weld and Aidan O'Brien in the last decade, with Weld winning seven to O'Brien's three. It's no surprise, then, that their runners are first and second in the odds right now.

Weld's runner is Right Honourable, whose debut run to third at Leopardstown wasn't quite what his trainer would have hoped for. Weld's track record has put his horse odds on for the victory here, but we're leaning towards O'Brien's Courage Under Fire, who ran to second in the same race without looking overly troubled.

The best place we've found to back him is at Ladbrokes, who will give you a decent 6/4.

Finally, in the 19:20 you'll find another Weld horse, Time To Inspire, currently installed as favourite. We're once again looking further down the listings, though, as we think Roconga is one to watch here. He's given some impressive performances on the flat, and his one win should soon become more if his luck turns a little.

He's a tempting price too, and you can back him over at SkyBet at a very tempting 12/1.

Ascot - Gigaset International Stakes

Setting off ahead of the King George at Ascot on Saturday afternoon, the 15:55 Gigaset International is no less interesting a race, albeit with a much larger field to choose from. We've had a look through the runners and riders to give you our picks.

Current favourite Librisa Breeze looks like a solid bet. He's a triple all weather winner, and his run to second in the Royal Hunt Cup was strong on soft ground and from an unfavourable place in the draw. He has given the impression of being a progressive horse, and this drop in trip might test that, but we think he's very likely to be there come the finish.

The best place to back him is at BoyleSports, at a very reasonable 8/1.

Next in the list to look at is Heaven's Guest. He won this race on soft ground last year, which came on the back of a fourth place in 2014. Having struggled in recent starts he looked to have regained his form in the last couple of runs, which include his close second place finish behind Golden Steps in the Bunbury Cup. He is only running 1lb higher on Saturday than he did in his winning run last year, leaving him well in contention in our eyes.

He's come down in price a little since his resurgence in form, but you can still pick him up at a very decent 10/1 over at Ladbrokes.

Finally, just a little further down we are rather tempted by Mutawathea. He has only ever won on all weather surfaces but everything about him gives the impression that he's going to come good in a major turf race one day soon. His third place in the Bunbury Cup was strong, in a race where he made the running, and he also finished second in the Victoria Cup. With his rider taking off 7lb here, this could well be his chance to sneak in and take that long overdue and well deserved win.

The best place to back him is at Coral, who are offering a very nice 12/1.
