Runner-up in his first two outings, Ruler Legend readily went one better when making all in the ten-furlong rated race at Naas for owner Boniface Ho Ka Kui.

The son of Camelot pulled away from his rivals over a furlong out and kept on well under jockey Declan McDonogh by five and a half lengths.

“He did it well. He ran well here last year and likes a dig in the ground.

“He’s a big galloper and will probably get a mile-and-a-half. He could be an Ulster Derby horse or something like that.

“All he does is stay, he’s resolute and keeps galloping. He probably ran into quite a nice horse of Joseph’s (Ghasham) in Cork the last day.

“He’s getting weight off them all today so he’ll have to improve as well.” Fozzy Stack.
