Robbie Power’s Galway Plate Tips & Galway’s Wednesday Betting Odds

Check out BoyleSports Ambassador Robbie Power’s Galway Plate tips and preview ahead of the big race this Wednesday at the 2023 Galway Races.

Robbie Power’s Galway Plate Preview

“Solving the puzzle for the 2023 Galway Plate is not easy. Throw in the added bonus of soft ground and it makes it even more tricky.”

“Soft ground is definitely not going to help the chances of Hewick, Enniskerry and Ash Tree Meadow, whose best form is all on good ground. It’s not going to affect the likes of Kilcruit who has form and strong form on soft ground.”

Hollow Games has only been seen a few times over fences, he won a beginners chase in Navan last year over 2m1f on yielding to soft ground. We know he handles soft ground and I think he’s got a big chance.”

Robbie Power’s Galway Plate Tip

“I think stepping up in trip is really going to suit Hollow Games. He’s got Sam Ewing on board – a really promising young rider. Kilcruit could be the class act in the race, but with a feather weight on his back, Hollow Games is the one I fancy.”

Tip: Hollow Games @ 15/2
