Matt Connor finds the target again
The form of Matt Connor s win at Cork on his previous start had worked out well and the 3/1 favourite followed up in the 1m2f handicap for three-year-olds.
Bill Lee tracked the leaders on the Teofilo gelding who was travelling well in third on the home turn. In front a furlong out, the Henry de Bromhead-trained winner kept on well in the colours of the Patocallagahanracing Syndicate to beat Picture Of A City by a length and a half.
“He did it well and he's improved from Cork,” said Lee.
“He travelled lovely today, I thought we went a nice even gallop. They've done a lovely job on the ground, it's riding beautiful out there.
“He travelled everywhere, he took me well into the straight and he picked up, I was just biding my time.
“I thought in Cork that he was a little bit green in front and he was a little bit like that again with me today and was rolling around with me but he galloped well to the line.
