Yeomanstown Stud's Invincible Army (Ire) (by Invincible Spirit {Ire}) added his name to the growing list of winner-represented first-season sires on Sunday as his son Love Billy Boy (Ire) scored on debut at Musselburgh. Sent off the 9-4 favourite for the five-furlong Race To A Cure For MND EBF Novice S., the £90,000 Goffs UK Premier purchase who races in the famous Roldvale Ltd silks travelled strongly for Sean Levey held up behind the leading pair. Making smooth progress to hit the front 1 1/2 furlongs down, the Richard Hannon-trained bay was chased to the line by Moonstone Boy (Ire) (Calyx {GB}) but was always in command en route to a 3/4-of-a-length success. The dam, a full-sister to the G2 Prix Robert Papin-placed Areen (Ire), is a granddaughter of the G1 Moyglare Stud S. runner-up Fear And Greed (Ire) (Brief Truce). Her yearling filly is by El Kabeir.
