was strong in the betting and proved better than ever back over fences as he went 3 places better than in 2022, his young rider continuing to impress (extremely good value for claim); made all, went with plenty of zest, jumped soundly in main, jinked before fourth and 4 out when distracted by loose horse, joined briefly home turn, quickened clear again straight.

Shambolic scenes at the start, with a very ragged getaway after no less than 3 false starts inconveniencing plenty, the fact this was yet another Galway Plate in which prominent-racers dominated providing a clear illustration as to why jockeys were so keen to get a good position.

ASH TREE MEADOW (FR) was strong in the betting and proved better than ever back over fences as he went 3 places better than in 2022, his young rider continuing to impress (extremely good value for claim); made all, went with plenty of zest, jumped soundly in main, jinked before fourth and 4 out when distracted by loose horse, joined briefly home turn, quickened clear again straight.
