Timeform pick out their best three bets from the Galway Festival on Friday evening...

"The change of gear she showed suggests the drop back in trip shouldn't be an issue..."

Timeform on Limini

ZUENOON - Galway 17:10

ZUENOON shaped as if in need of the experience when fourth on his debut at Limerick seven weeks ago, running green and keeping on well, all things considered, to be beaten just two lengths under a hands-and-heels ride. He looks sure to do better with that outing under his belt and is preferred to the standard-setting filly Coral Beach, who has done nothing wrong when finding one too good the last twice. Pepperoni Pete could also have more to offer and completes the shortlist.

HASIMIYYA - Galway 17:45

HASIMIYYA could be nicely treated based on her penultimate Leopardstown third and remains open to improvement now handicapping, having been used in a pacemaking roll at listed level last time. Gizi Gazelle showed much improved form when last seen winning at Tipperary in May and could be the one to give the selection most to do ahead of Mount Jubilee, another who appeals as the sort to do better in handicaps.

LIMINI - Galway 18:50

LIMINI failed to justify strong support when second on her Flat/handicap debut for Willie Mullins here on Monday, but she otherwise shaped very well, finding only a similarly lightly-raced sort too strong (pulled clear of the rest). The change of gear she showed suggests the drop back in trip shouldn't be an issue, and a repeat of that form would make her the one to beat for Willie Mullins, who has won two of the last three renewals of this race. Stablemate Gustavus Vassa and Espoir d'Soleil look best of the rest.
