It will be on the 2nd of August that the Galway Hurdle will be running, and boy are you going to be in for a fine display of horse racing at its very best if you do manage to watch that race, either in person at the racecourse or on TV too!
The ante post betting markets have been open and available on that major horse race for quite some time now, however we are now at the stage when those betting markets have found their feet so to speak, and by checking them out you can then get a fair idea of where the smart money is going.
However, there is not what you could by any stretch of the imagination call a red-hot favourite currently on those ante post betting markets, in fact all of the horses that will be lining up and taking their chances in this year’s Galway Festival do appear to have a fair and reasonable chance of winning.
So I would never put you off betting on any horse you do fancy, and think will win, but below I am going to be giving you an insight into some of the odds available on the most fancied of runners, and those odds for reference can currently be bagged over at the Bruce Betting site.
Favourites to Win the Galway Hurdle
There are two joint favourites currently on the ante post betting markets on the Galway Hurdle, and they are Le Richebourg and Whiskey Sour, as far as their respective form goes there is not much separating them and they can both be backed today at win odds of 7/1.
The second and third favourites are Good Thyne Tara at 8/1 and Ivanovich Gorbatov at 9/1, and I would not put you off backing either of them or both of them as all things consider either of them could win this race and win it quite easily too!
Each Way Possibilities
Bruce Betting really are leading the way with their ante post betting markets on this race, and regarding any each-way bets you choose to place with them on the Galway Hurdle they are going to be paying out to four places and offering one quarter if the win odds too.
As for the horses you should be backing each-way, well I am aware that many bookies are reporting strong support for Ballyoisin and Sharjah at 12/1, but for a much bigger potential winning payout it may be with siding on horses such as Tigris River and David’s Charm who can both be backed at odds of 14/1.
I would also urge you to consider backing some of the 16/1 horses too, and for reference those horses are Joey Sasa, Leoncavallo, Project Bluebook, Voix Du Reve, Low Sun, Meri Devie and also Timiyan.
But also consider doing a little bit of shopping around and comparing the odds on offer at a range of different online or mobile betting sites, as all odds compilers will have their own ideas as to the most likely winner of this race, so the odds will vary from site to site!
