There looks to be plenty more to come from Zoffany after he made it three wins from four starts in the Listed Golden Fleece Stakes at Leopardstown.

Sent off the 4-7 favourite having finished sixth to Strong Suit in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot, the Aidan O'Brien-trained Dansili colt readily picked up Mark Johnston's Stentorian at the furlong pole.

He was full value for the two-length winning margin and rider Seamie Heffernan said afterwards: "He's a good horse.

"He was a bit disappointing at Royal Ascot but he learned a lot from it. I think he'd stay a mile no problem."

Kissable is another bound for better things after getting off the mark in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden.

The Kevin Prendergast-trained youngster (8-11 favourite) had shown plenty of promise on her debut at Limerick recently and built on that, although she only got home by a neck from Pilonade.

James Kelly, racing manager to winning owner Lady O'Reilly, said: "We're delighted with that win.

"Declan (McDonogh) thought the ground might have been a shade quick for her but Leopardstown always do such a terrific job with the ground it's always safe.

"All going well she'll run in the fillies Group Three at the Curragh on July 14 and if that goes well then maybe the Moyglare Stakes. Declan says she rides like an Oaks filly.

"Kevin thinks the world of her, she's just a bit of a slow learner."
