Explosive Boy, who had run from the six, four and two boxes prior to the final of the Produce Stakes, added his name to one of the most prestigious roles of honour on Saturday night.

Pat Guilfoyle’s 28.15 Limerick winner made it 11 wins from 18 starts when clocking his fastest time at Clonmel when it mattered.

Shelbourne Park was staging the third round of the Irish Oaks and there was a stunning performance from Owen McKenna’s 19 month old Susie Sapphire.

At Cork, Silverhill Karen is dominant over six bends having won her last two 750 races by a combined 28 lengths. Only Jaytee Tornado (41.15) has gone quicker in the last four years.
