Hitchens: Beats Tiddliwinks at the Curragh

There was a British one-two in the Weatherbys Ireland Greenlands Stakes at the Curragh with Hitchens beating Tiddliwinks.

David Barron's six-year-old came with a decisive late run under Fran Berry to defeat the game runner-up, trained by Kevin Ryan, by a length and a quarter.

Berry said: "Connections were adamant I got a lead on him and waited for the gaps and, thankfully, the race worked out very well.

"He got out, had a couple of lengths to make up on Pat Smullen's mount (Tiddliwinks) but he picked up and won very well at the line.

"Just when I switched out for a few strides it took him a while to get going, but he got organised and did it well."
