"He absolutely loves this ground and I'm delighted for the O'Carrolls (owners), who have a pub in Listowel; I'm delighted for Eamonn who hasn't been very well recently and today was his first day racing in a long time," said trainer Susan Finn after her Youceeyouceecee toughed in out best in the Brandon Hotel Handicap at Listowel.

Following up on a Roscommon win from 15 days back, Killian Leonard was again in the plate and the Rock Of Gibraltar gelding got the better of Alans Pride and Stoked by three parts of a length and a length.

"He keeps grinding it out and is a very consistent horse. The weather beat us all year, surprisingly for Ireland, and on good ground he doesn't have the toe for it," elaborated Miss Finn. 

"He'll run again on Friday under a 5lbs penalty."
