Not Just Any Girl shows her ability at 501

Not Just Any Girl, second left, delivers her challenge
(Healy Racing Photos) Pat Flynn's Not Just Any Girl sprang a 50/1 shock in Tipperary when keeping on best in the mile and one handicap.

The Dylan Thomas mare raced in rear of mid-division and was niggled along by Killian Leonard under three furlongs out.

She began to inch closer entering the home straight and got a lovely run through to get on the heels of the leaders.

The five-year-old loomed large a furlong out and burst through to lead in the final 100 yards. She didn't relent as she posted a victory by half a length from 12/1 shot Liberality.

My Painter (9/1) and My Manekineko (16/1) took third and fourth respectively in a bunch finish.

Pat Flynn said: “She's been disappointing all along. I thought the trip might suit.

“We said we'd get her relaxed, take it handy, get balanced and let her come home. With her draw (in two) and claiming 7lb off I thought she had a little chance.

“I told him to go to the outer as you can get caught on the inside around here.

“It's a welcome winner.”
