Selection Reasoning

Njord is an obvious one having just failed by the closest to margins to win the extended mile handicap on Tuesday (thankfully for us!). He shot clear from a wide draw that day going down into the dip and looked home and hosed but for Saltonstall to enjoy a dream run through up the inner and run him down on the line. The handicapper liked what he saw as has given Njord a 6lb hike in the ratings so the fact he is allowed race from his old mark of 98 is a big positive. Always, he goes very well at this course with his record reading 3,1,2 and that included two runs on soft/heavy going. Well drawn in stall 7 and with Shane Foley riding Njord is a deserving favourite and the horse they all have to beat.

Racecourse: Galway
Time: 16:40
Date: 02/08/2020
Horse: On A Session
Current Odds: 14/1 Boylesports, Skybet, Unibet, Betfred & Betway all 5 places & BOG else 14/1 William Hill 5 places.
Advised Stake & Bet Type: 0.5 Point Each Way
Selection Reasoning

All the reasons for backing On A Session mentioned on Tuesday stand today. He was a bit unlucky in this race last year when coming home very strongly following a slightly impeded run out of the dip. The easy ground is ideal and maybe it is that he needs a drop in trip as I thought he would have finished off his race stronger on Tuesday night when running wide off the bend into the straight. Expect a different ride today from Shane Crosse who claims a valuable 3lbs leaving On A Session 2lbs well in compared to his runner up effort last year. Drawn in stall 5 he has every chance if producing his best and getting some luck in running. Jaasser was on the shortlist but is on a career high mark and would prefer better going on past runs.
