5.00pm Galway Tips & Betting Preview 05/08/2018

Blast Of Koeman was in great form in handicap company when last seen and a four pounds rise for his second-place finish at the Punchestown Festival in April may not be enough to stop him being competitive again today. The formidable Willie Mullins yard has two entered here, however, and it is his lightly-raced KOSHARI who looks the most interesting. This gelding by Walk In The Park struggled in the Galway Plate on Wednesday but he was in good form prior to that effort, and as that was his first start in handicap company, it would be no shock to see him resume his progressive profile now handed a much easier assignment.
