MARTIN Harley was victorious at Epsom this afternoon while Oisin Orr was also toasting success.
On Derby day at Epsom, Trentagh man Harley won the opening race, the Investec Woodcote EBF Stakes on Owen Burrows’ Twaasol (pictured).
Once Harley took command, there was no stopping and Twaasol won comfortably from fellow 9/4 joint favourite Modern News.
Trainer Burrows said: “He’s a neat little horse and he’s got a good mind on him. He’s a well-balanced horse so I was confident he would handle course.”
Harley rode 40/1 outsider Worthily in the Epsom Derby, finishing 16th.
Orr won the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden at Naas on Dermot Weld’s Kassaba.
Orr and Kassaba, sent off at 3/1, were always prominent and held on top win comfortably from Zawara (16/1) in the hands of Derek McCormack.
Kassaba led a one-two for Weld and the Aga Khan.
The win followed on from Orr’s triumph on Weld’s Lilli Milena (7/2) at Sligo on Thursday.
On Friday evening at Navan, Letterkenny youngster Dylan Browne-McMonagle won aboard the 10/1 Noble Intention.
Browne-McMonagle scored a fine win, with three-quarters of a length to spare, over the 9/1 Amlad.
The win, on the Tony Martin-trained six-year old, was Browne-McMonagle’s third of the season.
