Galway results 2012 day 5
Denis Hogan's Inis Meain was a superb winner of the Guinness Handicap on the fifth day of the Galway Festival, as after finishing second in a hurdle contest on day four, he returned to Ballybrit and went one better to storm clear of his rivals in what was a sparkling display.
Elsewhere on the card, Dermot Weld was in fine form as Muaanid and Pale Mimosa handed him another double on the card, whilst South South West was a gutsy winner of the Arthur Guinness Handicap to fend off Weld's Stuccodor in a cracking finish to the penultimate race.
