Watching brief

Few are more adept at introducing bumper horses than John Kiely, and the Waterford handler's Faha ran an admirable race in defeat when second to Clouded Thoughts at Clonmel on Thursday.

With the ground as quick as it was, Derek O'Connor probably had the runner-up further back than ideal for much of the race, as the Catcher In The Rye mare was always struggling to get to the handily ridden winner around the tight Tipperary track. Compensation surely awaits.
