The hot favourite that day was Vincent O'Brien's Abergwaun
(5-2) ridden by Lester Piggott, finishing third.

Lyons takes aim at the Abergwaun
Stakes The Ger Lyons-trained Ardhoomey enjoyed his finest hour on a racecourse when he won the Group 2 Flying Five Stakes almost a year ago at the Curragh, and while the five-year-old again holds an entry in the feature sprint on Irish Champions Weekend, he will be bidding to warm up for that contest with victory in the Listed Abergwaun

And success was all the sweeter as Lester Piggott came third that year on Vicent O'Brien's Abergwaun
after been earlier linked with the ride on the Cree Lodge- trained Swinging Junior.
In fact, don't be surprised if Astonished is the shortest post-war favourite since 5-2 shots Be Friendly (1968), Abergwaun
(1972) and Bas Bleu (1973) were gubbed.
