Keith Watson's New Society took the honours in the extended mile and five handicap at Fairyhouse.

The seven-year-old gelding loomed large behind front-running Cliara in the final two furlongs and was ridden by Sorcha Woods to get the better of that rival approaching the final furlong.

The 4/1 shot came in by three parts of a length from fast-finishing Parisienne Ways (15/2). Cliara was a length and a half back in third.

“He's becoming a bit of a stable star and has a liking for Fairyhouse,” said assistant trainer Marshall Watson.

“I only bought him for a grand and he's definitely repaying us well. It's great for the boys that bought him off us since his last win. They are school teachers, plumbers and tradesmen. Unfortunately they couldn't be here today but I'd say they are going to have good craic with him all summer long.

“We had found a few issues with him after his couple of runs in Dundalk, with his back and stuff, but we're very happy with him now, he's rejuvenated.

“He's in again at Gowran on Monday and I'd say he'll rattle on there. They are all anticipating going to Galway, that's what they want to do.”

New Society won a two and a half mile maiden hurdle at Fairyhouse in April.
