Martin Brassil has one eye on the Irish National for Double Seven, who continued his winning streak in the Listed M.W Hickey Memorial Chase at Wexford today.
Another in the McManus silks, the seven-year-old won the Munster National on his latest start and was settled in third by Mark Walsh before taking closer order three from home.
Despite a slight mistake at the second-last, the 5-4 favourite hit the front before the last and kept on well from to score by a comfortable five and a half lengths from Ballinahow Lady, who had attempted to make all.
Brassil said: "I thought this was a good opportunity for him today as he was well-in with a couple of horse rated below him, getting a 5lb allowance for being a novice.
"He will have a little break now until the spring. He has been improving all year and his confidence was on a high after Limerick.
"There are lots of options for him in the spring. He could possibly be an Irish National horse and there are plenty of other handicaps he could go for."
