Day Dream Boy (10/1) and Rathvawn Belle (33/1) scored for the former Garryrichard Stud resident at Fairyhouse yesterday and Carhue for Terence O’Brien and Paul Townend, justified the confidence of those that backed him from 10/1 into 6/1 for this extended two miler.
Terence O'Brien said: "He had been a bit disappointing but I put it down to the ground. Today's ground was a bit better than at Limerick.
"When the handicapper gave him a rating of 109 I was scratching my head thinking where did he get it from. He was probably right now.
"We'll find a handicap for him now. He's very big and chasing (has already won a point-to-point) is really his game." (TW & EM)
This afternoon's meeting at Ayr goes ahead as planned after the track passed a fourth inspection.
