Bashiyr justified 9/10 favouritism when winning the Platinum Packages At Gowran Park Maiden at Gowran today, scoring for trainer Dermot Weld, owner the Aga Khan and jockey Chris Hayes.

The three year old gelded son of Invincible Spirit made a somewhat belated debut when finishing second at the same Co Kilkenny track in August and today went one place better when beating newcomer Miss Clash by a length and a quarter.

Afterwards Weld said “he did it well. He ran a good race first time out here and followed it up there with a nice performance.

“He's tough and he's genuine, he's a nice horse. He put his head down and battled well.

“We wanted to see how we got on here today before making a decision where we go with him. We'll see how he comes out of the race before seeing where we go.”
