Willie McCreery saddled his second treble this month as Killourney made virtually all in the Follow BetVictor Racing On Twitter Handicap at Tipperary.

The Curragh trainer, who also saddled a treble at Gowran Park on June 3, has his team in flying form and this brought his tally for the season to 17.

Billy Lee, who was partnering a quick double having won the previous maiden on Memyselfandmoi kept the well-backed 3/1 chance up to his form and was going away at the finish.

The winning margin was two and a half lengths over Balefire with Peruvian Lily another four lengths adrift in third. Sweetest Taboo and the aforementioned Memyselfandmoi were the other legs of this 159/1 treble for the former Kildare county footballer.

McCreery said, "He is a big honest horse who did it well in Gowran and did it well today.

"Bill said the track was a tiny bit tight for him and he'll come on from that.

"Pat Grogan from Killourney owns and bred him (as part of the Rachra Partnership) and they have a better looking half-brother by Kodiac to sell this year!"
