Galway Festival 2013 Day 5
Dermot Weld's Olympiad finally broke his maiden tag last time out and the Rosewell House inmate will look to follow that victory up with another success in what looks a cracking renewal of the Guinness Handicap at 6:50pm on Friday night.
However, there will be some potential classy contenders lining up for hte 1m 4f conest with Aidan O'Brien's Chicago looking a likely adversary, whilst the likes of Clarach, who finished third earlier in the week and Paddy The Celeb add great depth to the contest.
Elsewhere on another cracking card at the Ballybrit venue, Gordon Elliott's Carlito Brigante will be a classy contender in the Guinness Galway Blazers Handicap Chase at 6:15pm, but Jamsie Hall and Victrix Gale are notable contenders in an intriguing 2m 6f event.
Mic Milano will prove to be a popular selection in the Guinness Handicap Hurdle at 5:10pm, whilst Kevin Prendergast will be trying to continue his fine form this week by bagging glory in the Guinness 17:59 EBF Auction Maiden at 5:40pm.
Stuccodor will be another potential winner for Dermot Weld at 7:55pm in the Arthur Guinness Handicap, whilst the final race of the day at 8:25pm will be a cracker as Distant Memories and Notable Graduate lock horns in a cracking Guinness Race.
