After completing a Gowran double on Treat Yourself in the Scraggs Alley Carlow Novice Handicap Hurdle, Davy Russell summed things up well when saying: "The jump at the last helped. The other horse stumbling also helped but he kept going well on the run-in."

The other horse in this scenario was the well-backed Call Rog. The issue was very much in the 'melting-pot' at the last when Call Rog got it 'wrong' and a bad stumble a stride or two later finally put paid to his chance.

< Treat Yourself is owned by Liam Breslin and trained by Arthur Moore and he was bringing-up a course and distance double having triumphed at Gowran to break his maiden 19 days back.

Of course Russell had gotten on the score-sheet half-an-hour earlier courtesy of the impressive Umpact. (TW & EM)

Umpact makes a big impact 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.
