Dylan Browne McMonagle won the feature race at Leopardstown yesterday.
The Letterkenny man was on 4/1 shot Gear Up for trainer Joseph O’Brien in the Group 3 Grant Thornton Ballyroan Stakes.
The pair took the lead in the one mile four furlong race at the two furlong pole and just about held on for the win from stable companion Cleveland to win by a neck.
