2023 Colm Quinn BMW Mile Handicap Betting Odds at Galway racecourse

Tuesday, 01 August 2023

The COLM QUINN BMW Mile Handicap should be a wide open betting heat and there’s no stand-out runner, with the bookmakers prepared to go 7/1 the field when it comes to this Galway encounter. Jonny Murtagh and Aidan O’Brien are set to have more than one horse lining up and these trainers could hold all the aces when it comes to land a victory.

Murtagh’s best chance of winning could be in the form of Blues Emperor, with Chazzesmee having also been successful on more than one occasion this season. Salt Lake City is perhaps the pick of the O’Brien runners and the Coolmore handler also has Subzero as a lively contender. Rahmi could also go well for Murtagh.

2023 COLM QUINN BMW Mile Handicap Tips

There are lots of potential winners of the COLM QUINN BMW Mile Handicap that is set to be run at 6.40pm on Tuesday 1 August, with Blues Emperor heading the market and the four-year-old has secured back to back wins recently. Jonny Murtagh’s runner was the winner of the Dubai Duty Free Derby Festival Handicap on 2 July after a win at Naas towards the end of May.

Chazzesmee is a five-year-old who has also been impressing this season, with the horse finishing second to Blues Emperor at the Curragh last time out. Previously to this, there was a victory at Naas in March where the 11/8 favourite won the King of Change Handicap over seven furlongs on heavy ground.

Salt Lake City is a leading contender for Aidan O’Brien and the three-year-old has plenty of strong credentials, with the horse carrying marginally less weight than the front two in the betting. Last time out, we saw the runner finish fifth in the Celebration Stakes at The Curragh and this came after a second-placed finish in the Glencairn Stakes.

Soaring Monarch runs for trainer Peter Fahey, with the six-year-old going well at Roscommon in early July and landing a victory over one mile and two furlongs. That came on yielding ground and marked a successful return to the track, while Rahmi was fourth in the recent outing at The Curragh which saw Blues Emperor land the spoils.
