Lucky thirteen aim for Leitir

Jim Bolger plans to give Dewhurst Stakes runner-up Leitir Mor his 13th run of the season at Leopardstown tomorrow.

The ultra-experienced two-year-old, who has led his stablemate and next year's 2000 Guineas favourite Dawn Approach in work, was the chestnut pacemaker at Newmarket a fortnight ago and held on to second spot, carrying out his duties to perfection.

Placed in two other Group Ones, as well as winning the Group Three Round Tower Stakes, the son of Holy Roman Emperor is pencilled in for this weekend's JRA Killavullan Stakes at the same grade.



Mossley lands maiden victory for Hennessy

Ex-Nicky Henderson inmate Mossley came good on his second start for Robbie Hennessy as he landed the Premier County Hurdle at Thurles.

Racing in the colours of Hennessy's father Bill, which were made famous by Champion Hurdle winner Sublimity, the six-year-old proved he could be a good buy.

Having travelled smoothly throughout for Barry Geraghty, he needed to be kept up to his work to beat the outsider Marlay Park by three-quarters of a length.

He had not shown much on his first start for his new stable but was well supported into 6/1.
