Abbeyfeale’s Paddy Harnett completed a double for trainer Joseph O’Brien at Dundalk on Friday night when partnering White Marlin to win the 12-furlong apprentice handicap. The 100/30 joint-favourite was never far off the pace and pipped 6/1 shot Picpoul by a nose to win for owner/breeder Morna McDowall. O’Brien had won the earlier two-mile handicap with First Blood, a first winner for Cian Horgan from Kilkenny.

Wesley Joyce teamed up with County Meath trainer Michael Mulvany to win the eight-furlong fillies’ maiden with the Get Up And Go Syndicate-owned Spirit And Glory. The strong 3/1 shot raced up with the leaders and held off the Adrian Murray-trained Sister Bridget by a nose.

Mark Enright was also among the winners as he partnered Barbapapa to take the eight-furlong maiden. Trained by Henry de Bromhead, the 100/30 joint-favourite made much of the running as he beat the John McConnell-trained Brave Troop by three-parts of a length.
