Andy Slattery continued a terrific season when Planchart claimed another Listed success for the Tipperary handler in the Corrib Fillies Stakes at Galway.

5/2 favourite Rayisa set out to make all in the seven furlong contest but was tackled turning for home by Planchart.

Declan McDonogh got a good tune from the 10/3 shot inside the final furlong as she stuck her head out in the closing stages to gain a half length success.

The American-bred winner had been fifth in the Oaks Trial at Naas last month having previously won a maiden at the same course.

“I think if they re-ran the race in Naas the last day she’d win and Billy Lee thinks the same way,” said Slattery.

“That’s as short as she wants to go today, and she won’t run over seven furlongs again. She’s a Listed winner now, and that’s the main thing for Mr Garvey.

“Every time she runs she finishes well, and we probably over-faced her a few times last year.

“She works with Creggs Pipes at home and sits in behind which suits her.

“We have won a Listed race and a Premier Handicap now so it’s been some week. I

“I’ve a nice bunch of horses this year. We were unable to sell a few in the breeze-up sales which left us with a few nice ones.”

Slattery had also landed the feature event on Tuesday night when Creggs Pipes took the Colm Quinn BMW Mile Handicap. That same stable-mate had also been a Listed winner previously.
