Trainer Phil Kirby got an impressive third winner in two days when Acknowledgement (12-1 betting odds) overtook Lady Bluesky in the final stretch at the Bet Mobile At Handicap at Ayr. Jockey Eva Moscrop got the 10-year-old Acknowledgement to sprint past his main challenger and win by a length and a half.

“He's been quite a nice work horse at home, but he was disappointing last time on his first run for us,” Kirby told Racing UK. “We had two winners at Market Rasen yesterday and another one today, so it's great.”

In other horse races, Jockey Jordan Nason got his second career win after mounting Gala Casino Star (5-1 betting odds) to victory in the Money Back On The Open At Handicap. Gala Casino Star ran past Another For Joe by three-quarters of a length.

Trainer John Oxx got his fourth Lenebane Stakes in five years when Aklan (14-1 betting odds) sprinted to a hotly contested first place at Roscommon. Jockey Ben Curtis warded off the favourite, Massiyn, in the final two furlongs.

Coolmore’s Count Of Limonade rode to a comfortable win at Roscommon’s seven-furlong race. The Aidan O’Brien–trained colt cruised to a relatively unchallenged three-and-a-quarter length margin in the contest.

“He kept it uncomplicated and he was genuine. He will be better on nicer ground as it is very soft out there,” jockey Joseph O’Brien told Count Of Limonade is a three-parts brother to Group 1 Coronation Stakes and Group 1 Matron Stakes heroine Lillie Langtry.
