Brief Ambition got off the mark at the third time of asking having been third on his debut at Punchestown and second at Portrush the following month, beaten just three lengths on both occasions for Peter Flood. The son of Yeats improved for both of these runs to secure a four-length success in the five-year-old geldings’ maiden at Bellurgan in the hands of Anthony Fox. The €36,000 store, who looked a cut above the rest here, raced up with the pace before quickening clear to win comfortably. This gelding, a half-brother to the five-time winner Mystic Sky, could develop into an exciting prospect between the rails in the future.
