De Bromhead & O'Keeffe win Killarney's opener
Runner-up on career debut at Leopardstown in March, the son of Caliphet was today having his first run for 139 days and justified 7/4 favouritism (from 3/1) in beating Babylon Beach by three and a half lengths.
Afterwards winning jockey Darragh O'Keeffe stated “he had a good run in a maiden at Leopardstown and he was coming back down in class a bit here. He was a bit keen but jumped super and kept going well.
“He likes that good ground and while I'm not sure what the plan will be, he is a nice horse.”
