Bound rounds out treble for Aidan O'Brien at Leopardstown

Bound wins the Trigo Stakes

Bound completed a Leopardstown treble for Aidan O'Brien by winning the Trigo Stakes.

The daughter of Galileo came into the race as an 11-race maiden but had showed talent, including when a close-up fourth at this Listed level at Naas last week.

She tracked the pacesetter Grandee until Seamie Heffernan made his move two furlongs out and although she didn't put the race to bed immediately, Bound (5-1) eventually established a decisive advantage and disposed of 6-4 favourite Cannonball by a length and three-quarters.

O'Brien, who also won the feature Killavullan Stakes with Classic prospect Kenya, as well as a maiden with James Cook, said: "Seamus always liked her and he wanted to ride her today. He gave her a lovely ride.

"She is a very honest filly, and very clear winded. We didn't always get a clear run with her and she's probably even better than her form. She is a very well-bred filly and I'd say she will be going to the paddock next year."
