Inflection Point under Rory Cleary produced a late effort to win the feature race on Friday night, the Crown Plaza Handicap carrying the Mayobridge colours of owner Nigel O’Hare & Partners.
The Invincible Spirit gelding who was recently acquired for 12,000 gns by Compas Equine/Shamrock Thoroughbreds at the Tattersalls Autumn HIT Sale, was held up in rear early on before been asked for an effort on the inner 2 furlongs out where he finished strongly to lead close home from the Dermot McLaughlin-trained War Hero to win by half a length.
Speaking afterwards, Ado said “Rory gave him a grand ride. He dropped him in which I felt he needed to do to get the seven. He got a lovely clear run and just idled a little bit in front.
