Pinpointed came with a strong surge in the final furlong to land the second division of the nine-furlong handicap at Tipperary, giving Billy Lee a double on the night.

The John Kiely-trained daughter of Pivotal was second on her first outing for the Dungarvan handler at Leopardstown nine days ago.

She went to post 10/3 second choice in the market tonight and was settled behind the leaders early on in the finale.

Lee gave her a strong drive in the straight to stay on into contention inside the final furlong and she was on top in the closing stages to post a length-and-three-quarters win over Matilda With Me.

The winning jockey said afterwards:- "She had a good run the last day over a mile which is probably her minimum trip. She ran a good race and ran into one that day.

"She is a nicely bred filly so that is an important  to get a winning bracket. I think she'll improve from a step up in trip and she is progressing. She is with a good man so hopefully will keep going."
