galway briefing: Galway winner Lorli bidding for quick follow-up.

Handicap (6f)

Notable runners

Suntory made a winning debut at Naas, the much-improved Lorli won at Galway on Sunday and Flying Knight won at Leopardstown, while Gold Chaser won at last year's Galway Festival.


Ado McGuinness, trainer of Jacks Estate

"He was drawn wide at Galway and had to do a lot to get into a position. This is his ideal trip and he was second in the race last year."

David Wachman, trainer of Dashing Duke

"He has had a few niggling problems and this seems a good race to get him started again."

Sean Treacy, trainer of Lorli

"Timmy Houlihan takes off the 5lb she carries as a penalty. As she is in good form, this is the time to go for a quick follow-up."

Dermot Weld, trainer of Gold Chaser

"He didn't get the clearest of runs at Galway and we are hoping for better here."

Mark Roper, trainer of Flying Knight

"When he won over a mile, Kevin Manning said we should bring him back in trip because he has so much speed. I thought he would win over seven furlongs at Cork, but he trod on his coronet band and had to be withdrawn."

Eddie Lynam, trainer of Suntory and Lillies Bordello

"Suntory has come good and

this will tell us whether she is

just a handicapper or a bit better than that. We are also on a fact-finding mission with Lillies Bordello, but she won't be as successful as the nightclub she was named after."

Ted Walsh, trainer of Reilly Mac

"He has a good chance, the trip should suit him fine and he has a good man on his back."

Pat Martin, trainer of Detatch

"He has won twice over the trip here and I thought he was unlucky at Cork last time."

Tom McCourt, trainer of Delvin Flyer

"He has won over five, six and seven furlongs. He is extremely well at the moment and I think he has a big chance if things go right for him."
