The Galway Festival continues on Tuesday evening
The Galway Festival continues on Tuesday evening

Timeform pick out three bets from the second day of the Galway Festival on Tuesday...


Housesofparliament - Galway 17:20

Housesofparliament had some smart form to his name on the Flat in 2016, including when three quarters of a length third in the St Leger, and is getting chunks of weight from most of his rivals here. He has to be worth another chance to build on his promising hurdling debut despite an underwhelming performance when last seen in February. Law Girl, the other four-year-old in the race is well respected alongside impressive Sligo scorer Boherbuoy.

Dochasach - Galway 19:05

Dochasach went with plenty of promise when fourth on her racecourse debut at Gowran 10 days ago and should have learnt plenty from that experience. She is taken to open her account in what looks a competitive maiden. Dreaming of Gold and Maysonette, who shaped well when a close fourth on her first start at the Curragh on Saturday, look the principal dangers, though market support for Dermot Weld's debutant Espoir D'Soleil could prove significant.

Tony The Gent - Galway 19:40

Tony The Gent was a ready winner at the Curragh from Mizaah last month and could land a second successive victory at this meeting for Ger Lyons. Baraweez is a regular at Galway, including when third, second and fifth in the last three renwals of this race, and is potentially well treated now, while Tandem is another previous Galway winner to consider for the Pat Smullen/Dermot Weld combination following his Leopardstown victory three weeks ago.
