One Voice was a facile all-the-way winner of the opening 2-y-o Fillies Median Auction Maiden at Leopardstown.

Jockey Shane Foley was able to ease down close home and still record a three length win.

Building on her debut runner-up finish over course and distance in June, the 2/1 favourite accounted for the running-on Auxilia (3/1), with Deise Delight a further three and three quarter lengths back in third place.

Jockey Nathan Crosse was unseated from Burren Orchid in the early stages. It was later reported that he was fully conscious and stable leaving the racecourse, and had been taken to St. Vincent’s Hospital for observation and precautionary x-rays.

The winning trainer Jessica Harrington said afterwards: “She was good. We thought she had improved a bit from her first run.

“She did a bit of work the other morning and we thought she had improved.

“He was always kind of in control. He had a nice draw and just kept it simple.

"We'll head on now from there. I'm not sure quite where we are going but we will find somewhere for her. It's nice to get her to win.”
