History was created on On The Wire on Thursday as three of us all gave the same nap. What can possibly go wrong?

We've two days left at the Festival and plenty of good races to get the teeth stuck into this weekend.

Be lucky.

Watch On The Wire and find out which horse has the burden of being napped by three of the team. Emmet Mullins was also a special guest

3.48 Galway: Barud

You are always worried there's something with a nice bit in hand in a nursery at this stage of the season and there are plenty of O'Brien-trained horses running off lower weights but it is really hard to get away from Barud.

He cost a lot of money as a yearling so clearly has a bit about him physically and he is out of a Daylami mare who predictably stayed well.

The hill looks sure to suit, he breaks well and I'd imagine Colin Keane will try to make all. He was very eye-catching at the Curragh last time and has been running in really smart maidens at the Curragh.

4.50 Galway: We'll Go Again

After a terrible start, this horse did remarkably well to finish a neck second to Teed Up the last time he ran at Galway, last October.

He's had very few chances over this trip on the Flat, ran a blinder the last thrice and has the booking of Billy Lee. He should run a big race.
