Trainer Joseph O'Brien completed a treble at Dundalk today as his Faradays Law lunged late to win the concluding O'Neill's Sportswear Handicap under jockey Wayne Lordan.

The four year old daughter of Lawman had failed to win in ten previous runs and today scored a 20/1 success to provide O'Brien with his third success today, having won the opener with Eos and a handicap with Waitingfortheday.

O'Brien wasn't present but jockey Lordan later said "she had some good runs early but she lost her way a little bit then. Joseph (O'Brien) got her and she ran well here to finish second and then she went to Leopardstown and Ballinrobe and ran OK but back on this surface she seems to enjoy it. She's a tough filly and kept at it well today.

"Joseph said she had gone on the surface before and the trip was no problem. He said she was in good order and that if everything went right she would take a bit of beating.

"She's quite a big filly, she might just be coming into herself now. She's a well-bred filly as well so every win is a plus."
