4.00 Galway – CURRENT OPTION (1.5pt win – 3/1 888Sport, 11/4 generally)

CURRENT OPTION doesn’t show much in the first half of the calendar year but comes alive at the Galway Festival and bids to win this 7f handicap for the fourth year in succession, I took a chance and backed him to small each-way stakes over an extended mile here five days ago where he finished an unlucky-in-running 12-1 eighth of 18, beaten by two and a half lengths. He’s not going to be anything like that price today but, granted luck in running is going to be hard to beat once more.

4.08 Chester – SAFE VOYAGE (1pt win – 3/1 generally)

John Quinn’s horses have been on fire this week and it was great to see the old boy My Wagyu re-discover some spark with fourth place in the Stewards’ Cup yesterday. The yard saddles another veteran in the shape of SAFE VOYAGE, who looks worth an interest in this 7.5f handicap. His only previous course outing resulted in a comfortable 7f Listed win a couple of years ago and it’s safe to rule out his 18th of 25 in the International Stakes as the ground was much faster than he prefers. Be careful which form you back him with as Liamarty Dreams, who finished lame at Thirsk yesterday, will surely be withdrawn and Rule4 will apply.
