MICHAEL O’Callaghan was probably not the only Kildare resident cursing his internet connection during the running of the Group 3 Molecomb Stakes, but all’s well that ends well, and the frustration of losing live pictures from Goodwood was forgotten when discovering that his Steel Bull (Colin Keane) had emerged victorious ahead of Ben Macdui (Kevin Ryan/Kevin Stott) and Internationaldream (Richard Fahey/Paddy Mathers), winning by three-parts of a lengths and a length and a half at the line.

Steel Bull had made his debut just a week prior to this breakthrough success, but was so impressive in overcoming a poor start to win a maiden at Naas that he was sent off a clear favourite here at 2/1.
