5 THIS WEEK'S FIVE TO FOLLOW 5.
That looked a decent maiden and, with experience under her belt, this Nayef filly should prove tough to beat next time.
OUT OF HEAVEN Trained by John Geoghegean, came out second best, behind Tellelle in a seven-furlong handicap in Galway.
Travelled well and, although the winner got 'first run', stuck to the task well. Compensation awaits in similar company.
HAYABUSA A five-year-old Sir Harry Lewis mare, made her debut in a Galway bumper and, when the penny dropped, finished well to fill second spot behind Honours Graduate.
Trained by Willie Mullins, she should be capable of success in the coming weeks.
MY BLUE HEAVEN This Kevin Prendergast-trained three-year-old filly made her belated racecourse debut in a Galway maiden on Tuesday and, a little unlucky running, went close against Dermot Weld-trained 'hot-pot' Qassaar.
Got going too late, but only failed by a neck and, although that was a modest event, looks capable of winning her maiden for veteran owner-breeder Basil Brindley.
ARE YOU THE ONE On a day when Charleville gave him a first Galway festival win, this Alhaarth gelding made a bold bid to complete a double for the County Kilkenny yard.
Made Dermot Weld's Precious Gem work hard for her victory, going down ultimately by a length and three-quarters, but pulled well clear of the remainder.
That represented a big improvement on previous form. And he might be worth noting, depending on how the handicapper rates him.
