IT was good to see John Woods saddle a winner at Down Royal when owner Philip White had the added pleasure of being breeder of The White Volcano who landed the extended three-mile handicap hurdle for the Woods yard.

Ridden on the Friday by Conor Maxwell, The White Volcano won a five-year-old geldings’ maiden on his third start at Loughanmore last October when, partnered by Jimmy O’Rourke, he beat Some Response by 10 lengths.
