THE 2020 Flat season concludes at Naas today where Gavin Ryan will be crowned champion apprentice. Colin Keane, matching his 2017 title-winning tally of 100, was presented with his trophy earlier in the week while Aidan O’Brien and Mrs Sue Magnier are once again the champion trainer and champion owner respectively.

Keane reached a three-figure score for the third time in a season that saw him record his first classic winners on Siskin in the Tattersalls Irish 2000 Guineas and Even So in the Juddmonte Irish Oaks. The 26-year-old achieved further Group 1 glory on Champers Elysees in the Coolmore America ‘Justify’ Matron Stakes.
