The consistent Latoyah Of North gained a deserved success when running out a wide margin winner of the concluding Racing TV Maiden at Down Royal this evening.
Mick Mulvany's charge went off the 2/1 favourite in the ten furlong contest and Gary Carroll settled his mount in behind the leaders in the early stages.
She got a split between horses to lead crossing the road at the two furlong marker and was sent clear before the furlong pole.
The daughter of Mustameet galloped on strongly in the closing stages to post a 12-length winning margin over Tritonix
Mulvany said: "The last day I thought it was an exceptionally hot maiden and I think she improved off the run the last day because I worked her the other day with a filly that was third and she was all over her. I knew coming here she was in good form.
"She definitely is improving all the time. It all depends what the handicapper does.
"The owner was thinking about that (Galway) a while ago and that we might freshen her up for there. I said we would get our wins first and then see. It could be an option in the long run but Galway is still a long way away.
"She seems to be able to stay a mile and two, a mile and a half - I think a mile and two is her best trip."
