Light shines at Wexford

first_img Press Association Weld doubled up for the day in the concluding Borro Mares INH Flat Race as Jane Mangan guided 100-30 chance Wandering Star to a two and a quarter-length debut victory. Weld and Smullen were narrowly denied when the Tommy Stack-trained Tooreen Legend justified strong support in the Sharon Boland Last Days Of Freedom Rated Race. The 11-4 chance prevailed by half a length and winning rider Billy Lee said: “He travelled well the whole way and I just bided my time with him as it was his first time over the trip. I might have got there half a furlong too soon but he kept going well. He doesn’t do a whole lot in front and he was rolling around a bit.” Patrick Prendergast has one or two nice horses in his care this year, chief among them Irish Derby hope Sugar Boy, and the handler bagged another winner with Longshadow in the Black Point Handicap. The not-unbacked 4-1 chance was ridden handily by Declan McDonogh and strode on three furlongs out, keeping on well to see off Longdock by three and a half lengths. Prendergast said: “It’s unusual for a Monsun but he likes fast ground. His last run was much improved and he’ll make a lovely hurdle horse.” Young Charlie Elliott again looked good value for his claim as he steered Jessica Harrington’s 9-4 joint-favourite Takeyoucapoff to victory in the Campile Apprentice Handicap. The Dermot Weld-trained three-year-old had run with promise at Dundalk last month and the benefit of that experience, allied to the step up in trip, was not lost on her. Hitting the front just over a furlong out, the 11-4 chance ran on strongly for Pat Smullen to beat Madam Mo by two and a half lengths. Smullen said of the Khalid Abdullah-owned winner: “She had progressed nicely from her first run, this looked a nice opportunity and she did it well. She was working well enough to win a maiden of this calibre.” center_img There could be better to come from Tuscan Light judged on her manner of victory in the Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Median Auction Fillies Maiden at Wexford.last_img read more
