Weld: Trains Emulous

Emulous made short shrift of a double penalty to take the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Brownstown Stakes at Fairyhouse.

Dermot Weld's filly defeated subsequent Windsor Forest Stakes winner Lolly For Dolly on her last start at the Curragh, and was not hard pressed in taking a second Group Three prize on the spin.

Pat Smullen's mount was handily placed in fourth in the early stages as British raider Agony And Ecstasy took them along at a brisk pace.

The 9-4 favourite made noteworthy progress as they straightened for home, and breezed into the lead approaching the one-furlong pole.

Claiomh Solais (8-1) stayed on late in the day, but was comprehensively outgunned by a length.

Ed Dunlop's Sharnberry, fifth in the French 1000 Guineas on her final start, never travelled with any fluency and was well down the field.

Agony And Ecstasy, trained by Ralph Beckett, also faded out of contention.

Weld, whose inmate was recording a fourth success from five starts, said:

"That was a very pleasing performance from a very consistent filly.

"She'll have a little break now and we'll train her for the Matron Stakes (Leopardstown) and the Sun Chariot (Newmarket).

"That was a very competitive Group Three. In fact, it was probably closer to a Group Two in standard.

"This filly likes a bit of time between races and that's why we decided not to go Royal Ascot."
