Backed from a shade under even money into a returned 8/11 Georgeville did it in style in the opener at Roscommon.

For Dermot Weld and Oisin Orr Georgeville travelled smoothly in the straight and put his stamp on proceedings a furlong out to beat Nickajack Cave by three and a half lengths in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Median Auction Race .

Weld's son Kris said: “He was a short-priced favourite and he did it as we hoped he would. He’s from a great family that has been really good to us.


“He’s still a work in progress and we’ll see how he takes the race and make a plan from there. He wouldn’t want the ground any quicker.”

W.M. Lordan, rider of Zorro Cass (FR) trained by Aidan F. Fogarty, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount hung left.
