Stephen Gray and Ros Brin are a fair combination and the pair came together for their third success when landing the Clonmel Supporters Club Beginners Chase for Drogheda trainer George Kingston.

The well-backed favourite (5s earlier into 3s) out-jumped Tadhg at the final two fences and that helped the Brian Boru mare on her way to a six length victory.

Kingston commented: "It's nice to get a winner. The mares allowance and the conditions of the race entitled her to win it.

"She showed no ill-effects from her fall the last day.

"She might be better over further and she'll go handicapping now.

"Stephen gets on well with her. He gave her a confident ride and he knows what he's at.

"His brother Shane is in South Africa for a month. He was placed on two horses for Mike de Kock lately. While Shane's riding at Turfontein Stephen's in the muck at Clonmel.

"But this is better craic!" (TW & EM)
