Ambassadorial could be set for a bright future following his successful introduction in the Horseware Maiden at Dundalk.

Mick Halford: Dundalk winner for Godolphin

Wearing the blue of Godolphin, Shane Foley crept into contention on the Mick Halford-trained 10-1 shot to lead at the furlong pole and he careered away from Thomas O'Malley to score by two and a half lengths.

"He's still quite raw today, and was really only ready to start – the penny only dropped inside the final furlong."

Kildangan Stud's Jimmy Hyland, representing Godolphin, said, "He's a very green horse and Mick liked him at home.

"We expect him to come on from that run today. Fingers crossed he has a big future, and he could be a Classic contender for next year if he goes the right way.

"He'll probably want a mile."
