The 3pm at Punchestown had punters on the edge of their seats as a tussle was fought out between stable companions A Wave Of The Sea and Cerberus, with the former battling back tenaciously to win the Ladbrokes 3-Y-O Hurdle.
In front after the second, the Demi O'Byrne owned gelded son of Born To Sea was ridden and pressed by Cerberus on the run to the final flight, he was soon headed but rallied gamely on the run-in, getting up close home to prevail by a neck.
The time was Time 4m. 2.30 secs, which is the same as the course average on that type of going
Cerebus was making his debut over hurdles and put up a brae display back in 2nd.
JJ said: "He was still a little bit green and I suppose he'd never really been in front. He was having a bit of a look. He did the job well, battled well and they are two nice horses going forward, with a bit of luck. It's a privilege to ride a winner in Demi's colours. Cerberus is owned by past pupils of the Good Counsel School in New Ross. It was a great run for them as well."
Pasley the gelded son of Camelot becomes Joseph’s 499th winner in the Gowran Park Golf Memberships For 2020 Handicap.
He chased the leaders, he sat 4th, 6 furlongs out, he was pushed along briefly in 3rd over 4 furlongs out, Donnacha rode him down the middle 2 furlongs out and went 2nd under pressure over 1 furlong out, he kept on well on the far side inside the final furlong to lead near finish, to win by a neck. The time was 3m. 25.20 secs, which was 0.39 secs slower than the course average on today's going
Donnacha said “He's still raw and he doesn't want the ground that bad either, I was off the bridle the whole way and the last 50 yards he pricked his ears again, so I think there is plenty in there. He's still learning. He stays well and around a more galloping track with a bit better ground he'll be better again.”
Asked what he thought on Joseph training his 500th winner he added:- “It's unbelievable to get that many in the time he's been training. It's nice to ride it for him.”
Dancing On A Dream proved an easy winner of the BetVictor Bet 5 Get 40 Offer Handicap at Dundalk. Owner Peter Savill was on hand to see his famous maroon and blue colours carried to success.
The daughter of Dream Ahead went slightly right form stalls, she soon chased the leader, she lay 2nd at halfway, travelled well to challenge 2 furlongs out, led the field 1 ½ furlongs out, she was ridden to assert a furlong out, kept on strongly final furlong to win by a comfortable three lengths.
The winning time was 1m. 25.16 secs, which is 0.47 secs faster than the course average.
Donnacha said, “She felt great on the surface. It worked out nice as Andy Slattery on Honor Oak crossed over and I got a nice lead off him. Hopefully there is another one or two in her. She was fine at the start. I got her led around a bit more and she wasn’t too bad.”
The Zoffany filly Jumellea was steered to victory by one of the best young riders on the pony circuit Dylan Browne McMonagle who was registering his first success on a racecourse. The filly was an easy winner of the feature Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Handicap.
Young Dylan rode over 200 winners on the pony racing circuit, he finished second on his first racecourse ride at Gowran last month.
The 16-year-old is now based with Joseph, the teenager settled his mount well off the pace, with the filly taking closer order on the inner from early in the straight. She was ridden and got to the front over a furlong from home, staying on strongly from there to score by six lengths.
"It was great to get my first winner for Joseph. It couldn't have gone any better as my family are here and it's a great day, said Dylan. "She's been running over a mile-and-a-half and a mile-and-six, and on the soft ground did it well today. I just took my time up the inside and at the top of the hill I let her roll on. She won well. I had 218 winners at the pony racing. It's good experience and a good grounding for all the young jockeys coming up. It's good to have it behind me."
Donnacha closed the Gap on Colin Keane by one when winning on Degraves. The son of Camelot was making it 3rd time lucky when winning the Welcome To Navan Racecourse Maiden. He was an eye-catching fourth on his debut at the Curragh back on the 9th of August, he has since finished third to Sinawaan at the Curragh on the 23rd August.
He was settled behind the leaders, taking closer order from early in the straight. He was pushed along to lead over a furlong from home and kept on well when ridden in the closing stages, going on to prevail by two and a half lengths.
"He did it nicely. The form of his last run worked out really well so he was probably entitled to do that but I think he's a smart horse," said Donnacha "He had no problem with the ground, he seemed fine on it and galloped through it well. I think he'll get a bit further but he's not slow. He quickens well, travelled really smooth, so I think a mile is probably fine for him at the minute."

Ellipsism the homebred son of So You Think ran out a comfortable winner of the Clonmel Handicap Hurdle in very convincing fashion. His time was 2.43 faster than standard on that type of going, he now is a 2-time winner from 7 runs.
The four-year-old was fitted with cheek-pieces when making a winning handicap debut at Kilbeggan last month and, after finishing in mid-division at Listowel, the addition of blinkers here resulted in another three-mile success.
JJ Slevin oozed confidence as the youngster asserted early in the straight and stayed on strongly after two out to score by seven lengths.
JJ said, "He stays well, and the blinkers made a big difference to him. Hugh won on him at Kilbeggan and things didn't go his way the last day and he probably needed the blinkers as he just needed an excuse to get out of it the last day. You'd be hoping he'd jump a fence someday."
