Golden Wonder will almost certainly run in the Galway Plate

Dessie Hughes feels he has two live chances in thetote.com Galway Plate with ante-post favourite Art Of Logistics and Irish National runner-up Golden Wonder.

Hughes has had the valuable handicap as the aim for both of them for some time and while Golden Wonder has not run since his brave effort at Fairyhouse, Art Of Logistics won at Punchestown last month.

Hughes told At The Races: "Both of them are well. I'm not sure about the trip for Art Of Logistics but Golden Wonder will definitely get it.

"I gave them three weeks off after Punchestown, about as much as I could afford to give them, and then they came back in, they're ready now.

"Golden Wonder should run well, he won his beginners' (chase) there so he likes the track.

"They could both do with some rain but they do a good job of watering."
