Joseph O'Brien's Uxmal was a very easy winner of the concluding Outlook Publications Race in Killarney.

He was another horse to dominate off the front and Dylan Browne McMonagle sent him about his business a couple of furlongs from home.

The 11/8 second favourite moved clear approaching the final furlong and was eased down close home to come in by four and a-quarter lengths. Enjoy The Dream (11/1) filled the runner-up berth.

Browne McMonagle said of the 106-rated winner: "He did it well - he jumped and nobody bothered me in front and he loved it. He pricked his ears around every bend and he enjoyed the turning track.

"He quickened up well when I asked him and is only going to get better. He will have no problem stepping up into Group company now, I'd imagine, and is definitely a fun horse for the year."
