Jockey Philip Enright completed a double at Tramore today, his fourth winner of the Christmas period, when steering the Eoghan O'Grady trained Unoccupied to win the Follow Us On Twitted @tramoreraces Beginners Chase.

The son of Old Vic eventually ran out the 11 lengths winner from Zerkarya and O'Grady later stated “he's an honest horse who keeps galloping.

“I'll enter him for a 3m1f handicap chase at Fairyhouse on January 20 as he stays forever. He won his point to point at Affane which is a tight track so I knew he'd be fine around here.”

Five to four favourite Caheronaun failed to travel with much enthusiasm and eventually finished a well held fourth.
