Recollection produced a strong late surge to get the better of a blanket finish in a thrilling contest for the Ashtown House Stud EBF Fillies Maiden at Tramore.

Faseeha took up the running from favourite Marie Celeste over a furlong out, but a host of challengers ran into contention, with Our Rachel and Nicaragua both appearing to nose in front at some point in the final furlong.

It was Shane Foley who came through decisively, though, getting Ken Condon's 4-1 winner up in the dying strides to beat Nicaragua by a head, with Our Rachel and Faseeha a close-up third and fourth.

Condon said: "She was beaten everywhere bar the last stride. It's never a good sign when you are off the bridle that early.

"She just didn't take to the track and didn't help Shane at any stage but what she does do is stay and she is from staying family.

"She met the rising ground and just got up in the nick of time and I'm delighted with that.

"She has shown a progressive profile and we will see what the handicapper does. We might try and find a fillies' handicap for her and a mile and a half would be her minimum trip."

Foley completed a double when guiding home Seamus Fahey's Hazariban (5-1) in the Dan Cowman Memorial Handicap.
