Stack sweet on Lolly bid

Ashley Iveson

Lolly For Dolly is enjoying a lucrative campaign and will bid to plunder further Pattern-race honours in the TRI Equestrian Stakes at the Curragh on Saturday.

Tommy Stack's four-year-old has already been successful twice at Group Three level this season and was narrowly denied the hat-trick by Irish 1000 Guineas contender Emiyna.

Lolly For Dolly could book her ticket to Royal Ascot with another prominent showing this weekend.

Stack's son and assistant, Fozzy, said: "She'll take her chance and she seems well in herself.

"She's had a great year so far, winning two Group Threes and she did nothing wrong the last day.

"The winner is one of the leading fancies for the Irish 1000 Guineas and we were giving her 15lb and only got beaten a short-head.

"It would be nice to see her win again this weekend and if all goes to plan, she will go to Royal Ascot for the Windsor Forest Stakes.

"We might give her a bit of a break then and bring her back for something like the Matron Stakes.

"The ground doesn't seem to bother her either way."
