SEA Of Grace battled back in the dying strides to take Group 3 honours in the Flame Of Tara EBF Stakes at the Curragh.

After moving eyecatchingly from last place to lead over a furlong out, the 7-2 chance was headed by old rival Eziyra but John Oxx's filly knuckled down admirably for Declan McDonogh. The daughter of Born To Sea got her head back in front where it mattered to deny the Dermot Weld-trained even-money favourite by a neck.
