Jessica's super 'Human

Highly Approved looks the pick in a tight contest

Jessica Harrington is only human, but she's sending out winners like a machine at the moment and ONLYHUMAN (7.40, Galway) could be one of her biggest winners of the season so far.

The queen of Irish racing can be the toast of the racing fraternity in Galway this week if Onlyhuman can record a notable success in the Colm Quinn BMW Mile Handicap.

Harrington went into Galway with 15 winners recorded in July and Onlyhuman would appear to be a solid selection in one of the most hotly competitive Flat handicaps of the season.

Not a race that Harrington has won before, Onlyhuman was last seen when beating Great Grey and Turnberry Isle with the latter going on to win twice since. A decent draw in stall nine is no harm for the selection and the lion's share of this €120,000 pot could be making its way back to Commonstown.

Harrington's stable jockey Shane Foley may end the evening on a high when riding the consistent HIGHLY APPROVED (8.40, Galway) for Aido McGuinness.

The Dublin-based trainer can be happy with his lot so far this season and he's known for having his horses running well at Galway so Highly Approved is the pick in a tightly compressed renewal of the Caulfieldindustrial.com Handicap.

The Latin Quarter Beginners Chase is one of just two National Hunt races on the card today and it often throws up a decent sort.

ZERO TEN (5.55, Galway) carries the colours of the Mee Family who love Galway and can enjoy more success at the Ballybrit venue with this highly rated chasing recruit.

AZILA (6.25, Galway) can bring familiarity to proceedings and enhance Dermot Weld's winners record around here, while SHARP FOCUS (8.10, Galway) is one that looks hard to oppose for the leading jockey, Colin Keane.
