Gavin Cromwell winner at Leopardstown

The Gavin Cromwell-trained Harbanaker registered that important first win at the 12th attempt in a 50-70 Leopardstown handicap today.

The four-year-old had finished fifth on four occasions in 11 previous outings, but Gary Carroll got the win today after a disappointing run at Killarney on Tuesday.

The winner held off the challenge of Jim Bolger's Beagnach Sasta by a neck.

Also, on a first start as a three-year-old the 11/10 favourite Ebeneezer Perry landed a maiden event for trainer Ger Lyons and champion jockey Colin Keane to score by half-a-length.

It was a seventh winner of the month for Colin Keane.
