Waitnsee got up to win at Kilbeggan for Danny Mullins © Photo Healy Racing
Waitnsee got up close home under Danny Mullins to complete a quick double for trainer John Ryan in the Follow Kilbeggan On Twitter Handicap Hurdle at Kilbeggan.
The Tipperary trainer had sent out Ramondo Dnzeo to win at Cork less than half an hour earlier. However, the victory was much harder won on this occasion as Mullins only asserted on the run-in to gain what seemed an unlikely success. Rock Road who was the fourth successive beaten favourite on the card, appeared to have matters in hand when taking over from Jack Hackett before the final flight but that one had no answer to the late burst of Waitnsee.
“She ran a cracker in Punchestown and we were disappointed that it didn't happen for her in Killarney, it was too quick for her,” said Ryan.
“We're absolutely delighted with her here now. She'll go for the Galway Blazers next.”
