Champion jockey Colin Keane and trainer Ger Lyons combined to land a Tipperary treble last night.

Tennessee Wildcat completed a good evening for Keane and Lyons when making it three for the Meath duo with a sixth overall success 

The duo had earlier visited the winners' enclosure with Gold Jasmine and Blue Uluru.

The Stewards requested a report from the trainer about the apparent improvement in form of Blue Uluru and were informed that a drop back in trip to five furlongs was the contributing factor - the Stewards noted the explanation.

“It's a super night's work so I'm delighted,” commented Lyons who has made an entry in the Melbourne Cup with Mustajeer which most recently finished fourth in the Ebor Handicap at York last week.
