Vociferous Marina, the longer price of Jim Bolger's two runners, stepped up on her debut a week ago, to open her account in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden at the Curragh.

The daughter of Vocalised came with a strong run under Ronan Whelan towards the outside to settle the issue in a matter of strides.

Vociferous Marina (14-1) got first run on Finn McCool, who stayed on well for second place, but was a length and a three-quarters behind the comfortable winner at the line.

The first two pulled nine lengths clear of newcomer Low Latency in third. Bolger's other contender Treaty Of Vienna was fourth after being prominent for most of the contest.

Bolger said: "She ran well at Gowran and obviously stepped up from that.

"She goes on the ground which helps, and I'd say she will get a mile. She could run again this year."
