Galway results 2013 day 5
Noel Meade's Curley Bill was a narrow winner of the highlight on day five of the Galway Festival as the 9/2 shot held off a late effort from Bayan to land the Guinness Handicap in what was a cracking highlight to Friday's action at Ballybrit.
Elsewhere, Tony Martin continued his fine form at the meeting as Woodsophiesmile was victorious, whilst Dermot Weld's Unaccompanied was narrowly victorious in the Guinness Race in the latter part of the fixture.
