Dunum overcame a wide draw to run out a gutsy winner of the Gowran Festival Of Speed August 21st Handicap at Gowran Park.

Wayne Lordan had the Natalia Lupini trained four-year-old out smartly and tucked in behind the pace. Cool Leader and Everylittlestep went toe to toe up front early in the straight but Lordan soon produced the favourite with a well timed run.

Once getting to the front, the son of Ivawood battled on strongly to record a second course and distance win of the season.

There was a nasty incident in the straight when the staying on Hanbags N Gladrags clipped heels and came down. She in turn brought down Zaur

Both horses and riders, Billy Lee and Gavin Ryan, were fine afterwards.

Natalia Lupini, “He seems to like it here and Wayne gave him a powerful ride again from stall 17. He got him across nicely and was always in the right position.

“I’m delighted for the owner Maurice (Burns) who bred him. It was his dream to breed and have a winner.

“He won’t mind an ease in the ground and we could aim at Galway. He can drop back to seven on a stiff track or run over a mile or nine furlongs.”
