Trainer Pat Martin and jockey Killian Leonard were the only 'multiple' winners at Dundalk this evening as the pair combined for doubles when Easy Boy landed the concluding Handicap.

Ninety minutes earlier the pair had struck with course specialist Reckless Lad and Easy Boy was himself scoring a second course win and a third career success when beating runner-up Pillard by half a length.

Martin later commented "we've always felt this fella was better than what he was showing, and just out of desperation we said we'd try the visor on him - he worked well with Reckless Lad in a visor recently.

"He travelled real well through the race, and Killian gave him a lovely ride again. He needs to be covered up as long as possible and it was a lovely ride."
