EACH week of the season seems to bring with it yet further cheer for Ken Condon’s impressive two-year-old team and the trainer pulled off quite a surprise in the first running of the Listed Arqana Irish EBF Marwell Stakes as Miss Amulet upstaged the evens favourite Frenetic.

Even before this five-furlong affair, the victorious Colm Griffin-owned filly looked an inspired €7,500 yearling purchase having won a maiden at Cork and finished second in a Down Royal conditions race 10 days previously. However, Miss Amulet took a marked step forward under Billy Lee to win rather snugly.
