Shane Crosse had his first ever track winner at Naas in April, so it was fitting that the champion apprentice scored his 28th and final winner of the campaign on the final day of the season back at the Kildare track on Sunday.

Crosse, apprentice to Joseph O’Brien, produced a good front-running ride on the John Feane-trained Naadheer, who made every post a winning one in a mile-and-a-half maiden. The 17-year-old finished five wins ahead of Killian Leonard who was in turn one win ahead of Ben Coen.
