One of the highlights of British flat racing is the Glorious Goodwood Festival and over the pond in Ireland one of the greatest weeks in Irish racing is the Galway Festival. Paddy Power is getting his teeth stuck in to the racing and we have not one but two Money-Back Specials ahead of today’s action in online betting.
There are seven races at Goodwood with the opener at 2.00pm. The first action at Galway is at 4.00pm.
Paddy Power punters are bound to have particular interest in the Molecomb Stakes at Goodwood at 3.45 and the lucky last at Galway, the five furlong handicap at 5.35pm.
Take a deep breath because Paddy’s got another one…
It will be a cracking opening day at Glorious Goodwood and Paddy is risking a healthy pay-back to punters if Morawij does the business this afternoon. The Roger Varian trained colt has good form after coming fourth in a Group 2 at Ascot and then winning at Sandown and is the 2/1 favourite with Paddy Power.
Rock Critic is the top weight in the 5.35pm at Galway but will have plenty of support. David Weld bagged a hat-trick of winners yesterday and is expected to do well again this afternoon. This seven-year-old has won three of his four starts at this meeting in recent years and another win here would mean a tasty payout for Paddy Power punters.
