We bring you our Galway Festival tips, highlighting three horses for Punters to back on the final afternoon of action at Galway.

Another fantastic Galway Festival draws to a close on Sunday. Although no fans have been allowed through the gates, viewers have still bee treated to six days of pulsating action, and day seven’s card promises to be just as exciting.

I’ve taken a look through the card in full and picked out by top three bets on day seven of the Galway Festival.

2020 Galway Festival Tips – NAP Of The Day

While I’m slightly wary of Bigbadandbeautiful, the best bet on day seven at Galway has to be BUILDMEUPBUTTERCUP (NAP). Willie Mullins’ mare has already run during this meeting, finishing fifth of 19 in a classy renewal of the Galway Hurdle. Kevin Manning’s mount travelled really strongly into that race, but found little in the closing stages. 

I’m convinced flat racing suits Buildmeupbuttercup much more than jumping. She’s by far the highest-rated entrant in this small, select field, and the favourite romped to victory in a maiden over 12 furlongs at this meeting 12 months ago. Even at 5/4, she looks an excellent bet.

2020 Galway Festival Tips – Next Best

Southern Cape was backed into 1/4 favouritism to win a seven-furlong maiden at Gowran Park last month. Despite his exceedingly short price, Donnacha O’Brien’s favourite had to work hard to see off FOURHOMETWO (NB), who recovered well from a sluggish start to push the winner all the way to the line.

Johnny Murtagh’s colt looked perfectly comfortably on ground verging on heavy that day, so won’t mind soft conditions around a very similar track in Galway. Shane B. Kelly takes three off Fourhometwo’s back, and he will be high on confidence, having ridden a couple of winners for Murtagh when he last rode out a week ago.

2020 Galway Festival Tips – Treble

18+ only. Gambling can be addictive. Play responsibly.

Prose has been fairly poor on all of her appearances thus far, and Willie Mullins’ second-favourite, La Joya didn’t shape with that much promise on debut. So, I think it could be well worth taking a punt on well-bred newcomer, LADY DAHLIA (TRB) for Joseph O’Brien.

Lady Dahlia is a full sister to stablemate Leo De Fury – a 114-rated colt, who won a Group Two on his reappearance this season, and scored by five lengths on his debut over 10 furlongs, despite going off as a 7/1 shot. O’Brien must be confident this daughter of Australia will stay to pitch her in over a-mile-and-a-half straight away. Lady Dahlia can make a winning start to what could be a very
