Martello chase debut delights trainer
Mags Mullins was "delighted" with the chasing debut of Martello Tower at Navan last weekend.
Martello Tower: Nice chasing debut
A Cheltenham Festival scorer as a novice hurdler in the 2015 Albert Bartlett, he was winless in three outings last season.
Making his fencing bow over two miles and a furlong – a distance short of his best – Martello Tower performed with great credit to be beaten just three-quarters of a length by Anibale Fly.
"I was delighted with his run at Navan," said Mullins.
"Two miles would have been too short for him but he jumped great, and it was a lovely start over fences.
"He had a few hiccups last year but hopefully he will enjoy a good season now.
"He's in the Drinmore but he could go to Fairyhouse for a two-mile-six beginners' chase."
