Will the final day of the Festival see a double for first day winners – Kalellshan and Train of Thought?
On the first day of Galway Week, Crockford warned punters of the strong whisper from Weld about his Train of Thought who duly obliged. Today he is back along with Hogan’s first day victor Kalellshan to seal a second Festival success. The King of Galway (Weld) pulled off of a mighty training performance with Rock Critic yesterday (as predicted) who won on a impressive debut over hurdles following his fourth in a competitive flat race earlier at the Festival. Train of Thought will prove today that this trick can also be performed in reverse with him running back on the flat after his hurdles success. Kalellshan looks well placed to win over fences after his win on the first day over hurdles.
Crockford’s Dead Cert – Train of Thought (5.00 Galway Festival)
Weld’s supreme training performance with Rock Critic yesterday will be repeated again today in reverse. His horse has good flat form and is in good form as exhibited by his first day win. If he takes his chance again today Crockford is sure that he will be in the winners enclosure adding to Weld mighty Galway Week tally.
Crockford’s Whisper – Kalellshan (3.55 Galway Festival)
Hogan has trained this horse to perfection for Galway Week after a prep race on the flat before the festival. Crockford believes that he can follow his five length hurdles win with an excellent run in today’s handicap chase.
