Timeform pick out three bets from Galway on Monday.


Free Expression - Galway 13:55 (LAY)

Free Expression had some useful form to his name over fences last season and it wouldn't be a surprise if there was more to come from him this time round. He has a 10 month absence from the track to contend with here, though, and could be worth laying with a couple of exciting Gigginstown runners in opposition. A Genie In Abottle looks a particularly interesting prospect now sent chasing and is fancied to give Free Expression more to think about than the current odds suggest.

Hash Brown - Galway 14:25

Hash Brown shaped well when third on his return from four months off the track at Navan last time, travelling smoothly into contention as the field turned into the straight and only weakening when the lack of a recent run began to tell in the closing stages. He should strip fitter here and, with Barry Geraghty back in the saddle, Hash Brown is fancied to show the benefit of that latest outing and can regain the winning thread with a defeat of the useful Dromnea.

Joshua Lane - Galway 15:25

Joshua Lane showed improved form to open his account over hurdles at the ninth attempt here 20 days ago, staying on strongly to lead on the turn for home and always doing just enough to hold the runner-up. That form gives him the edge over the thriving Coolfighter here and, while Barry Geraghty's decision to ride Oathkeeper is an obvious concern, Joshua Lane could yet be capable of better now stepped up to this trip and is taken to follow up under his in-form jockey.
