Royal Ascot - Horse Racing: Carroll lands Lady Tilbury ride

David Marnane has booked last year's winner of the Queen Mary to ride Lady Tilbury in Wednesday's sprint at Royal Ascot.

Carroll in the saddle

Gary Carroll, who won the race last year on Quick Suzy, takes the mount for the Tipperary trainer who won the Royal Hunt Cup at the royal meeting four years ago.

Lady Tilbury, a 12/1 with bet365 for Wednesday's opening race over five furlongs, arrives at Royal Ascot fresh from a sparkling display in a conditions race at Tipperary, backing up an impressive maiden win at Cork by keeping on strongly to beat Mehmar.

Marnane excited by runner potential

Marnane said: "She has a great mind. She's quick. She finds the line well – three good attributes to have.

"I think she's an exciting filly. She's not just a Queen Mary pocket rocket, there's a bit of substance to her.

"We've had a couple of Royal Ascot winners in handicaps and this is the first time we've ever had good two-year-olds around the place, so it's great to be going there with her. It's incredibly exciting.

Carroll was on board at Tipperary and Marnane is delighted to have secured him again for a race in which the Wesley Ward-trained Love Reigns heads the market.

Marnane, who also won the Wokingham with Dandy Man at the meeting 10 years ago, said: "He did a good job at Tipperary and was the last man to ride her, and did nothing wrong to come off her. He's a top rider. He won it last year, so he knows how to do it."
