has been vindicated in his belief that would improve for the step up to middle-distance races
The progressive came home best of all to bag the Ballyroan Stakes at at 7-2.Last year’s St Leger runner-up Bondi Beach was sent off the 5-4 favourite despite having to give at least 6lb to his five rivals, and while he ultimately had to settle for third, he was far from disgraced in conceding a stone to the winner on his first start since May.While Seamie Heffernan and Bondi Beach came with their run between horses, the three-year-old swooped down the outside under Kevin Manning and got the better of a battle with the promising Almela (7-1) to take Group Three honours by half a length.
