She's Our Mark came from last to first to take the Group Three Give Thanks Stakes at Cork.

Pat Flynn's six-year-old mare (4/1) swooped down the outside in the final furlong to beat Leo Gali by a length and a half, with Zarebiya a short head away third.

"I felt she had a good chance today and I feel now that she'll get a mile and six," said Co Waterford-based Flynn, whose charge was winning at a mile and a half for the first time in a distinguished career.

"She only cost around 12 grand as a yearling and she has been an unreal servant as she's had well over 40 runs," Flynn added.

Jockey Danny Grant was completing a double, having struck earlier on Foolproof (11/2) for John Murphy in the Navigation Road Nursery.

Hen Night gave trainer David Wachman and jockey Wayne Lordan back-to-back victories in the Platinum Stakes after the success of Latin Love a year ago.

Absent since finishing third to the subsequent Irish 1000 Guineas winner Bethrah at Leopardstown 12 weeks ago, the 10/1 shot stormed past Famous a furlong out and then held Maybe Grace by two and a half lengths.
