Henry de Bromhead sent on a good winner last night at Clonmel in Ornua. Whilst the stable's Foxearth had to work harder, he was still a comprehensive winner at the finish in the Kilmore Rec & Corner Inn Bar Rated Novice Hurdle at Downpatrick.

Just four ran here and the Andrew Lynch-ridden Foxearth, and Prince Garyantle had it to themselves from some way out. Nine lengths split them at the line.

Lynch said: "He stayed three miles well the last day and having ridden the other horse (Prince Garyantle) I was anxious to put a bit of pressure on him early and he galloped well.

"It's lovely ground, in fairness they do a good job here."

Bounty does his job

Jim Culloty's Blue Bounty prevailed in the Cork Racecourse Apprentice Handicap under Sean Davis much to the delight of owners the Forever Optimists Syndicate.
