The Ryans Cleaning Chase is the showpiece affair at Galway and the race has attracted several classy sorts as the National Hunt season unwinds

Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh have enjoyed plenty of success of late and they combine here with ABRE DE VIE. The son of Antarctique tops BTO+ ratings by a wide margin heading into the contest and he'll likely be in the frame come the finish. Although Abre De Vie has lacked real cast-iron consistency throughout his career he's occasionally displayed what a talented gelding he can be. The seven year old finished sixth in the Galway Plate in July before winning at the same circuit in August. Despite being Mullins' second string runner in the affair, Abre De Vie showed off all of his jumping ability and cruised to a six-length success from the highly rated Shaneshill. The gelding could only then muster a seventh-place finish in the Munster National last time out, but his run at Listowel was just a week after his Galway win and it should be forgiven. Abre De Vie runs this afternoon after a decent absence, which should have freshened him up, and Mullins brags a 28% better than expected strike rate in the past two weeks.

A GENIE IN ABOTTLE is taking a drop in class to run in today's affair. Noel Meade's charge was last seen at the Punchestown Festival in April when finishing third in the Champion Novice Chase. A second season novice this term, A Genie In Abottle broke his duck over fences with an impressive victory in a competitive race at Fairyhouse last campaign, while also finishing second in a Grade Three affair at Naas. Connections may well try the son of Beneficial over the longer trip again this season, but this should be a decent warm-up for the gelding. Sean Flanagan rides and he shows an 11% better than expected win rate when teaming up with Meade.

CALL THE TAXIE is clearly a horse who is still improving. In his nine-race career, the son of Scorpion is yet to finish outside the top four and bids to land a hat-trick at Galway. Call The Taxi was a two length winner of a maiden hurdle at Thurles in February before being put away for the rest of the season. The six year old made his chase debut at Navan last month and caught the eyes of plenty, with Ellmarie Holden's charge sticking on well to win by nine lengths. Although Call The Taxie faces much stiffer opposition this afternoon, he is second best rated on BTO+ and Holden boasts a 90% better than expected strike rate over the distance.

MALA BEACH has yet to hit the heights some predicted. Gordon Elliot's gelding was a Grade Two winner as a novice hurdler and many expected him to be even better over larger obstacles. That hasn't proved to be the case, however, and the nine year old has just one win over fences on his CV. In his past two runs, Mala Beach has fallen and then was pulled up and has plenty to prove. One positive is that Davy Russell rides and has a 28% better than expected win rate at Galway.

According to the betting, it would be a minor miracle if CABLE flexes his muscle.
