Irish Publican Orders Doubles Allround at Ayr; GOLDEN MOMENT: Owner Tommy Docherty (Left) and Trainer Kevin Ryan Celebrate the Thrilling Victory of 20-1 Outsider Advance in Yesterdays Nailbiting Ayr Gold Cup


Byline: Ed Watson

CALL it the luck of the Irish. Tommy Docherty, a pub landlord fromCounty Donegal, was preparing for a knees-up to bring any house down afterlifting the [pounds sterling]121,000 Ayr Gold Cup for the second time as an owner yesterday19 years after first doing so with So Careful in 1988.

This time it was the four-year-old sprinter Advanced who carried his red, whiteand green silks to a 20-1 victory from another horse with Irish connections,Benwilt Breeze (22-1), a first runner in the race for County Meath handler GerLyons, with Patavellian (100-1) third and Beaver Patrol (20-1) fourth.

It was also a sweet moment for two of Dochertys countrymen, trainer Kevin Ryan,who was winning Europes richest sprint handicap for the first time, and jockeyJamie Spencer, riding in it for only the second.

Spencer carried out a change of tactics aboard Advanced to the letter. Riddenwith more restraint that is often the case, Spencer delivered his charge with aperfectly-timed run up the stands rail to pip Benwilt Breeze, who had shotclear up the centre of the track approaching the final furlong having racedclose to the pace with the far-side group.

I didnt really know how far the other group were in front of me, but I wasalways confident I would be first home on the my side, said Spencer, whosedelight at striking Gold was tempered slightly by a two-day ban for careless riding.

Whether that was going to be good enough, I didnt know until we hit the line.My horse broke smartly, we got a nice bit of cover through the race and hepicked up really well. Yorkshire-based Ryan had targeted a slice of revengeever since Advanced finished third 12 months ago. He said: I cocked it up lastyear by telling Neil (Callan, jockey) to come across to the stands rail when,if hed gone up the far side, I think hed have won.

This has been his target all year and he was trained specifically for today, soits great.
