Donnchadh Doyle doubled his score in race two with Kilcullen Article (see separate story) and the Ballindaggin, County Wexford operator started the day at Tinahely last Sunday in perfect fashion courtesy of Three Oscars in the Casey Enterprises, Gorey 5yo Mares Maiden.

The Jamie Codd-ridden favourite lived up to her billing in great style, accounting for Lily Of Killarney by ten lengths.

Three Oscars came here with form behind Abigail Lynch (now with George Baker cross-channel) and Vinnieslittle Lamb (bought for £49,000 at Brightwells Cheltenham Horses in Training Sale 2012 in the middle of last month).

Three Oscars has a decent future on Sunday's evidence and she has plenty of winners in her pedigree including Fairy Knight (won eight). Her half-sister by Beneficial, Coolharbour Breeze has a point-to-point and three track wins to her name thus far. Donnchadh Doyle also saddled the third home here in Hearditbefore. (EM)
