Whenurgoodurgood makes a mistake at the last before beating Westmead

Whenurgoodurgood proved just that when justifying favouritism in the Dawn Milk Omega Maiden Hurdle at Killarney.
The 5/2 favourite filled the runner-up spot on his hurdle debut at Bellewstown earlier this month, and went on better here under Conor Orr.
The lightly-raced seven-year-old gelding led approaching the final flight but was done no favours by the wayward Westmead in the closing stages before getting the better of that rival by a neck.
Baboin was a further three and a half lengths adrift in third.
Winning trainer Nigel Slevin said, “It was deserved. He was a bit unlucky the last day as he was green and backward. I’ve had three seconds in the last ten days so I’m delighted to get a winner.
“He’s a nice type of horse and will jump a fence in time.”
