Annexation makes it an across-the-card treble for de Bromhead

Annexation fairly rattled home in race five at Gowran Park to bring up an across-the-card treble for Henry de Bromhead. A Shin Undine had worked his way to the front approaching the final furlong and was straining every sinew as he battled his way up the hill.

Annexation took aim, though, and surged past him inside the final furlong to roll home by a length and a-half at 13/2 for Billy Lee, having been much bigger this morning. Duke Of Leggagh 10/3f, stayed on for second with A Shin Undine (33/1) and Sixpack (6/1) third and fourth respectively.

De Bromhead said: “I'm delighted with that. Billy gave him a super ride.

“I'm delighted for the lads (South Ros Racing Syndicate) as he lost his form last year and we were all starting to lose heart.

“It's amazing with these old guys, we just kept him sweet and I thought he looked amazing walking around the ring tonight.

“We've had a few winners today and it's funny how it goes like that.

“Funny, the first day he ran for us he won here during Covid.”

Rachael Blackmore rode de Bromhead's two winners on the National Hunt card in Tipperary - Music Of Tara and Nas Na Riogh

Lee was also successful on Willie McCreery's Buttermere Ridge in the opener.
