Dylan Browne McMonagle reached double figures for the season and helped Navan-based trainer Pat Martin maintain his good recent form when taking the 12-furlong handicap on the Peter Cullen-owned Quiet Desire at Dundalk on Wednesday.

The 12/1 chance beat 85/40 favourite Getaway Queen by three-parts of a length and Martin said, “I’m so pleased for Peter who is from Clonee in County Meath. He is so enthusiastic and I can’t wait to see how excited he is.

He has all his family around him tonight, it’s a big deal for him and it's a big deal for us all.” McMonagle is operating at impressive strike rate and this was his tenth winner of the season from just 63 rides.
