Riven Light shines with Listed success at Listowel

Wed 13 Sep 2017

Riven Light continued his progression on the Flat with a smooth win in the Edmund & Josie Whelan Memorial Listowel Stakes.

Trained by Willie Mullins, Riven Light plied his trade over hurdles since arriving from France but with his attentions switched to the level, he has made giant strides, winning a big pot at Galway over just a mile.

Upped to Listed level for one of the feature races on the fourth day of the Harvest Festival, he never looked in any danger under Kevin Manning.

The 11-8 favourite put the race to bed some way out and while Dermot Weld's Zawraq, returning from a long absence, closed to within three-quarters of a length, he never looked like winning.

Manning said: "It was a great spare ride to get, he's a smart horse. As soon as I came off the bend, he was gone.

"He was doing nothing in front, but I think he's a very smart horse.

"Willie is a pleasure to ride for and as soon as I moved on him, it was all over."
