Gordon Elliott: Among the winners again
Dinaria Des Obeaux made an impressive jumping debut when storming to victory in the Galtee 3-Y-O Maiden Hurdle at Cork.
The filly, trained by Gordon Elliott, cruised into the lead after the third-last flight and quickly stamped her authority on proceedings.
Jack Kennedy was able to coast home on the 6-1 shot, who led home a one-two for owners Gigginstown House Stud with Tout Est Permis, trained by Mouse Morris, 29 lengths behind in second.
"She goes about her business without pulling up trees at home and that surprised us," said Elliott's assistant, Olly Murphy.
"She travelled and jumped great and if you backed her, you wouldn't have done a whole lot of sweating!"Dr Mikey made all the running to deny Elliott and Kennedy a quick double with Woods Well in the Charleville Cheese Maiden Hurdle.The Margaret Flynn-trained seven-year-old pulled out more for rider B J Foley in the closing stages when Woods Well closed-in on the leader.Dr Mikey pulled away from his fellow 7-4 joint-favourite on the run-in to score by six lengths. Black Ace was two and a quarter lengths away in third place.
