Leitir Mor: Gained Group 3 verdict

Leitir Mor won the Group 3 Go And Go Round Tower Stakes at the Curragh for Jim Bolger and Kevin Manning.

The 11-1 chance was still a maiden after nine starts but she made all of that experience count as having sat close to the pace, she was asked to go on with a furlong to travel and just got the better of a bob-of-the heads finish with Cougar Ridge.

Royal Empress was back in third with the pacesetting Tennessee Wildcat run out of it into fourth.

"That was brilliant. He's finally got the monkey off his back," said Bolger's travelling head lad Ger Flynn.

"At Dundalk the last day it just didn't happen for him. I don't think he likes the place."

Well-supported favourite George Vancouver (8-13) was a bitter disappointment as Aidan O'Brien's colt only found the one pace having been waited with in the early stages.
