Pencil chalks up debut triumph

Limerick's opening Student Raceday 11th April Maiden Hurdle saw Pencilhimin, a full brother to 2006 Gold Cup winner War Of Attrition, make a winning debut for Gavin Cromwell.

The 20-1 shot did it in style under Robbie Power, pulling clear to beat I'lltelimar King by four and a half lengths.

Fergal Ross, a member of the Step Together Syndicate, said: "We've always thought a lot of him but he's had plenty of different injuries.

"He's a bit long in the tooth and he's taken a while to come right - we didn't know what to expect coming here today."

The Robert Tyner-trained Byerley Babe (2-7), ridden by Phillip Enright, recorded a cosy one-length victory over Tudor Fashion to open her account in the Munster Supporters Club Mares Maiden Hurdle.

Tyner said: "I was a little concerned about the ground - the lads say it's very deep. I'm not sure if there's any such thing as an easy race on that ground but she was entitled to win like that.

"I've entered her for the Grade One at Fairyhouse. There might be a race for her at Punchestown as well - we'll talk to the owners (JP McManus)."

Gold Bullet (8-13) delivered on the promise of his hurdling debut second when easily taking the Tote Jackpot Maiden Hurdle.

Andrew Lynch had very little to worry about throughout and after taking over front long-time leader Not For You three from the finish, Tom Taaffe's grey found plenty up the home straight to draw nine lengths clear.

Whisky And Rye defied an 8lb rise for last month's Clonmel triumph when doubling up in the hands of Brian O'Connell in the Family Day 7th Handicap Hurdle.
