Rog stumble hands it to Treat at Gowran
Treat Yourself (nearside) battles it out with Call Rog at Gowran

The 'bet-history' page on a leading odds-comparison site tells quite a story for Umpact as he shortened-up from an opening quote of 3/1 this morning into a returned 5/4 for the Race The Stops A County - January 24th Thyestes 2013 Maiden Hurdle at Gowran. To the delight of all involved, the French-import made an impressive Irish-bow under Davy Russell, scoring by five and a half lengths.
