The consistent Lord Park, trained by Michael Halford, justified 6/4 favouritism in the concluding RSS Document Storage Maiden.

The Tamayuz gelding, who had been placed in eight of his twelve races, chased the leaders before hitting the front on the home turn. From there he stayed on well to draw four lengths clear of market rival Ballinlough Gale (2/1)

It was a seventh success this term for winning rider Scott McCullagh, leaving his dad Niall with a bit of catching up to do after he notched his second of the campaign aboard Noirvento earlier on the card.

“It’s nice to get a winner for Michael Halford,” said the younger McCullagh.

“I started off with him before I went to England and he was very good to me, he gave me a good grounding and I’m very grateful to him for giving me the ride.

“He’s been running well in maidens and handicaps without getting his head in front, but he seemed to enjoy the tighter track and softer conditions today.

“He travelled away fine on the ground, they went a nice gallop, and when I asked him he picked up well and put it to bed nicely.”
