The final day of National Hunt at the Galway Festival gets underway on Friday evening and we’ve highlighted our best bet of the day ahead of a cracking card of racing.

With some solid course form to his name, Litterale Ci could be worth chancing after a fine third here on the flat earlier this week.

She continues to tumble down the ratings to a hurdles mark of 127 and it’s interesting that 5lb claimer Aine O’Connor, albeit winning on the charge back in 2018, gets the ride ahead of usual pilot Aidan Coleman, who is present at Ballybrit.

With that weight carriage eased, and given her track history, she could have a bit of an outsiders chance wearing cheekpieces for the second time.

Winning at this sort of trip before, she cannot be completely ruled out despite a few lingering question marks but there may be potential and enough clues to suggest she can go well at a price.
