Make A Challenge's swift return to action paid dividends as he secured back-to-back Listed wins in the Abergwaun Stakes at Navan.

Denis Hogan's charge hit the target at the Curragh last Saturday and reappearing just seven days later, he again took gold under Joe Doyle.

Sent off the 4-9 favourite in a contest saved over from Tipperary's cancelled meeting on Thursday, Make A Challenge was not the best away but he travelled smoothly through the five-furlong heat before Doyle let him edge in front of Elzaamone inside the distance.

However, Shane Foley was stoking up Urban Beat to great effect on the stands side and he looked as though he might just poke his head in front approaching the line, only for Make A Challenge to push on again and win cosily by half a length. Schroders Mistake was third.

Make A Challenge is now set to step up to Group One level for the Flying Five Stakes on Irish Champions Weekend next month.

Galileo Chrome continued his progression with a stylish win in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Yeats Stakes.

Joseph O'Brien's colt had won his two previous outings this season and handled the step up in trip and class with aplomb.

Ridden with ultimate confidence by Shane Crosse, fresh from a Group Three win on Thundering Nights for O'Brien a day earlier, the 2-1 favourite never looked in any trouble.

His wins at the Curragh and Leopardstown this season had come over 10 furlongs, so he had questions to answer stepping up to a mile and five furlongs in testing ground.

However, he cruised through the race before shooting clear on entering the final furlong, beating Emperor Of The Sun by five lengths.
