The son of Elusive City is the second combined bonus winner within two days following Penny's Pearl, who was successful at Newmarket on Thursday.

O'Leary - who owns and trains the colt - secured Jolly Snake through James Donnelly for £20,000 from Lynn Lodge Stud at last month's Goffs Breeze-Up Sale. He was led out unsold at £20,000 at last year's DBS St Leger Sale.
