No Delay For Rain

Rain Delayed just edged out Miss Gorica in a thrilling finish to the Listed Cork Stakes at the Mallow venue.

Sent off an 11-1 chance, Ger Lyons' runner overcame a lengthy absence to collar 4-1 favourite Miss Gorica inside the final furlong.

The market leader put up a good battle but Keagan Latham managed to conjure a little extra from Rain Delayed to prevail by a head.

"We thought he'd need the race but he is gutsy and I have to give Keagan plenty of credit," said Shane Lyons, the trainer's brother.

"We walked the track twice and given where he was drawn, he decided to stick on the virgin ground."
