Waaheb loses out at Fairyhouse
Published 27/02/2013 | 14:37
THERE was a major turn-up in the opening race at Fairyhouse when 1-4 favourite Waaheb could finish only third of five behind Art Of Logistics this afternoon.
Second to Jezki in a Grade One at Leopardstown, Dermot Weld's inmate was a faller on his next start and came here looking for a confidence booster.
However, his jumping was less than foot perfect in the Visit fairyhouse.ie For Special Offers Hurdle, whereas Bryan Cooper was always travelling nicely on the 9-1 winner.
Art Of Logistics cruised into the lead at the second-last and though he scrambled over the final flight, he was able to hold off Midnight Oil to give Dessie Hughes yet another winner in a fine season.
