A very tight photo finish which seemed to take an age to be announced but it was Brian Ryan and Barry McHugh who were in front by the shortest of margins.
Great to train a winner for new owners David and Deborah of Franconson Partners who also bred Brian and named him after a dear friend who passed away in 2016.
"BRIAN RYAN, hadn't run since fifth in what turned out to be a very good novice last April, attracted some early support on stable debut, but was fairly weak by off time. He took a while to get the hang of things but quickened smartly and obviously has a future. Trainer Ruth Carr is 5-19 for the month."
