Dutch masters Flying rivals
Dutch Masterpiece delivered the goods in the Group Three Flying Five Stakes at The Curragh on Saturday.
Gary Moore's charge hadn't been seen since landing a Newmarket handicap in June but he showed no signs of any ringrust as the 4/1 chance successfully graduated to Group 3 level to land this valuable sprint.
Judge 'N Jury and Hamza attempted to dispute the early fractions and having seen off that rival, Kevin Ryan's charge attempted to see off allcomers from the rail .
Dutch Masterpiece had sat quietly off the pace and having secured a gap as they reached the final furlong, Joseph O'Brien produced the three-year-old perfectly to score by a cosy half-length.
O'Brien said: "He jumped and he travelled well. The ground is quick, safe ground.
"It took a bit of time to get comfortable in the race. He got a nice split through and he went to the line well.
"It looked a decent enough race on paper. Mr Moore was very happy with him and he thought he had a massive chance if the ground was safe enough."
Hamza held on for second with Russian Soul best of the home contingent in third.
