Probably edges out Colombo in Railway

Report: Curragh, Saturday

Dubai Duty Free Full of Surprises Railway Stakes (Group 2) 6f, 2yo

IRELAND'S champion Flat trainer Aidan O'Brien was denied his 12th success in the Railway Stakes when Cristoforo Colombo went down to Probably at the Curragh on Saturday.

The 11-10 favourite looked set to reward favourite backers, but was edged out by Probably, who carries the colours of Coolmore partner Michael Tabor, but is trained by David Wachman.

The Railway Stakes has been a stepping stone for some star horses including El Gran Senor, Rock Of Gibraltar and George Washington.

"He has shown us plenty right from the start," said Wachman. "He's a big horse that we would definitely expect to do better as a three-year-old, but he's a good-actioned horse as well and will do well on better ground."

ROGER CHARLTON was rewarded for sending Definightly to Ireland for the Sapphire Stakes when his sprinter pegged back fellow raider Judge 'N Jury under Johnny Murtagh.

"The horse in front of me quickened well and then just drifted across me, but as soon as my fellow got the gap he battled on well," said Murtagh.

"I wasn't sure I had won but I went to the line well and his head was down."
