Markab is clear of his rivals.

Markab is clear of his rivals.

British domination of the Weatherbys Ireland Greenlands Stakes continued as Markab travelled powerfully on the front end throughout to win in style.

The Henry Candy-trained seven-year-old was always in the ideal position and found plenty for Pat Cosgrave when asked to really quicken a furlong out.

Snaefell gave chase but the 100-30 favourite was never in any danger of not collecting.

Cosgrave said: "I thought he looked a lot better today than the last day, he clocked a very quick time at Thirsk and I thought he had improved about 5lb or 7lb for the run so I hoped he would go well.

"I thought he had a good chance, we wouldn't have brought him here otherwise, he had a nice prep at Thirsk and that entitled him to be here."

Tom Gould of the Tight Lines Partnership added: "He is a relatively lightly-raced horse and we haven't overfaced him.

"He is entered in the King's Stand and if he goes to Ascot, that is where he will go."

Sky Bet make him 16s from 25s for that race.
