Francis Of Assisi (3c Danehill Dancer-Queen Cleopatra, by Kingmambo) brought more black-type success for Danehill Dancer at Leopardstown on Sunday.
The Aidan O’Brien-trained colt could be a useful prospect next season after seeing off 15 rivals in the Listed Knockaire Stakes under Seamie Heffernan.
“He had some very good form on soft ground, but he disappointed at the Curragh the last day as he didn’t enjoy the ground. He has been working nicely and he will be back next year,” Heffernan told irishracing.com.
Danehill Dancer was also on the mark in Hong Kong on Sunday when Endowing (4g Danehill Dancer-Brazilian Samba, by Sadler’s Wells) captured a local G3.
