The Galaxy 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Ozzmosis will need luck from the draw but has a stack of ability and is well placed in a field of this depth. Aft Cabin can be hard to catch but is well placed in a field of this depth. Uncommon James is looming at a big price and is a chance to figure in this while Private Eye has a stack of class and is a big price against these.

The Galaxy 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Private Eye (14)

Keen to be with him at the odds. He loves racing here and most recent wins have come from wide draws. Well placed in this field and will take beating at what is very likeable odds.

2. King Of Sparta (11)  – scratched

3. Mazu (15)  – scratched

Can’t have.

4. Uncommon James (1)

Maps well from barrier 1 and has the ability to give this a shake fresh. A very in form Lane enhances its chances.

5. Aft Cabin (8)

Racing in good fashion and should give this a shake. J-Mac does the riding and this race is a suitable target. Will take beating against this lot if finding its best form.

6. Buenos Noches (4)

Had excuses last start and can bounce back here. Like the booking of Gibbons and barrier 4 should offer every possible chance.

7. Kallos (12)

Can’t have.

8. Remarque (6)

Has the ability but is hard to catch. Can give this a shake.

9. Asfoora (17)

Good enough to win but tough draw. Goes in the mix but will need a very good ride.

10. Passive Aggressive (10)

Good first up win and looks nicely placed to continue with things.

11. Sunshine In Paris (2)

Stack of market support to take this out fresh and maps for a good time of it from barrier 2. Maloney teams up again and this suits.

12. Zapateo (9)

Can’t have.

13. Ozzmosis (13)

Hard to beat fresh and looks well placed against these despite the draw. Went in leaps and bounds last prep and placed to ability here.

14. Front Page (16)

Can’t have.

15. Queen Of The Ball (3) – scratched

16. King’s Gambit (5)

Getting hard to catch but has the ability. Poor first up effort but good enough to bounce back. Take on trust.

17. Derry Grove (7)

Can’t have.

18. Quick Tempo (18)

Prefer others.
