The Tullow Tank secured his second Grade One prize of the season with a determined display in the Paddy Power Future Champions Novice Hurdle at Leopardstown.

Philip Fenton's star youngster arrived at Foxrock off the back of victory in the Royal Bond Novice Hurdle at Fairyhouse, but was still not favourite with Willie Mullins' previously unbeaten gelding Moyle Park the 6-5 market leader.

Moyle Park travelled best into the straight, but emptied quickly under Ruby Walsh and The Tullow Tank was in front jumping the final flight.

The 9-4 chance galloped all the way to the line to score comfortably in the hands of Danny Mullins, with the front-running King Of The Picts passing Moyle Park on the run-in to grab second.

Fenton said: "That was very satisfactory. Three out and two out I didn't think it was going that smooth, but it all changed up the straight.

"He put the race to bed like a really good horse. He'll probably come back here for the Deloitte Novice Hurdle.

"He's a huge improver and the summer off I'd say really crowned him.

"He looked OK going left-handed, but it was hard to know with the wind being so strong.

"He'll be entered for the two-mile race and the two-and-a-half-mile race at Cheltenham. The ground will probably dictate where we go.

"If it came up soft he'd probably go for the Supreme, but if it was quicker we'd probably think about going for the longer race (Neptune Investment Management Novices' Hurdle)."
