The second division of the Boyne Valley Racing Weekend produced another fast finishing winner as 25/1 shot Nakakande flew home to land the spoils.

Robbie Colgan got a good tune from the Bungle Inthejungle filly inside the final furlong as she swooped close home to record a half length win in the seven-furlong contest.

Karl Thornton's filly could turn out again quickly back here on Wednesday with Galway also in her sights.

“She's a lovely filly. She's just had issues with her feet for the last six or seven weeks,” said Thornton.

“She's very genuine and I'd say she has plenty of ability. Robbie said she wasn't doing much but once he pulled her out she flew home.

“It was the same in Sligo and she wants a bit of juice in the ground.

“She might come back here on Wednesday and if she could sneak into Galway I'd say she'll go there.

“If she got a bit of juice in it she'd love going up the hill.

“A good friend of mine Ian Brennan, who used to ride, recommended her to me so it's up to him that we have her.”
