Super Stroll takes Sprint

Andrea Atzeni delivered Stroll Patrol (20-1) with an undeniable late on the stands rail to land the Sprint Handicap at the Curragh.

Your Pal Tal looked home and hosed when getting the better of In Salutem in the final furlong only to be nabbed in the final strides by Johnny Murtagh's three-year-old filly.

Murtagh said: "She came with a big reputation earlier in the year but it hadn't quite happened for her yet.

"Colin Keane said the last day to drop her back in trip as she wasn't short of speed.

"Andrea gave her a lovely ride and said she felt like a different filly. She probably likes the warmer weather.

"It was a nice pot to win and hopefully she can go on to better things.

"We always felt she was better than a handicapper and earlier in the year we were scratching our heads how she hadn't won.

"She showed a nice turn of foot and likes that ground.

"I had her in at Naas on Wednesday but I'll probably treat her like a good one now and mind her."
