Jockey Johnny Murtagh completed a double at Dundalk this evening when steering 8/11 favourite Little White Cloud to win the Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Maiden (Div 2).

The son of Dalakhani was produced to lead a furlong out before staying on well to record a length win over Mischief N Mayhem.

Oxx was not present but Murtagh did later briefly mention “Little White Cloud has come on for the run at Leopardstown (in September) but he is still a big baby. He could make up into a nice mile and a half horse for next year.”

Murtagh had earlier partnered Levanto to win the earlier division of the same maiden.

Cross country to two year old win for Mullins!

Trainer Willie Mullins completed one of the most unusual across-the-card doubles imaginable, at Dundalk this evening, when his Levanto added a two year old Flat maiden to Uncle Junior's earlier win in the Cross Country Chase at Cheltenham.
