Realt Mor causes shock at Easter festival to take the Powers Gold Cup

REALT MOR produced a fantastic front-running display in the hands of Davy Condon to claim the Powers Gold Cup at Fairyhouse.

Formerly trained by Nicky Richards, the eight-year-old joined Gordon Elliott earlier this year and although he only made it as far as the first fence on his Irish debut at this track, he ran out an impressive winner on his next start at Navan.

Pitched in at Grade One level for his latest assignment, the 10-1 shot was sent straight to the head of affairs and quickly opened up a big advantage on the rest of the field.

It seemed likely he would be swallowed up when the rest of the pack closed in towards the end of the back straight, but Condon had clearly given his mount a breather.

Realt Mor kicked on again rounding the home turn and although his stablemate Mount Benbulben and also Mikael D'Haguenet and Dedigout threw down challenges, Realt Mor found plenty to take top honours.

Favourite Dedigout came from further back on the run-in to claim the runner-up spot.
