Famous Name - won at Leopardstown.

Famous Name bounced back to winning form in the Jockey Club of Turkey Trigo Stakes at Leopardstown.

Dermot Weld's three-year-old was just touched off in the French Derby earlier in the season but has been slightly disappointing on his last two starts.

But fitted with first-time blinkers, the 11-10 favourite coasted to a two-and-a-half-length victory over Poet to give Pat Smullen another valuable winner in his quest for the jockeys' title.

He now has 83 victories, four more than Berry, with Johnny Murtagh back on 77.

"He's a proper horse and that was a nice performance," said Weld.

"That's it for the year for him now, he'll come back next year and we'll hope to win a Group One with him.

"He ran too keen in France last time and the horse is still not fully furnished."
