Updates:

It is notable that Derek O’Connor was booked to take the ride aboard Thelongwayaround for his debut at Tralee in a 13-runner five-year-old maiden, suggesting hopes were high for the Fruits Of Love’s introduction. A bad mistake at the mid-way point put pay to any hopes, and he was looked after, pulling-up before the race had really begun in earnest. That proved to be a wise decision, as seven-days later he was in the winner’s enclosure following a three-length victory at Kinsale. Patiently ridden once again towards the rear of the 12-runner field, Thelongwayaround had learned a lesson from his opening effort, as there were no jumping mistakes as he steadily took closer order on the inside of runners along the back straight. Still with a couple of lengths to find on the previously placed leader approaching the penultimate fence, the bay gelding continued to find for pressure to win going away by the line.
