Jack Kennedy and trainer Gordon Elliott won the second race on the card at Tramore on Sunday having narrowly lost out in the opening contest. Up And Out took the runner-up spot in the four-year-old maiden hurdle but the pair were winners again as the Ray Stokes-owned Dartington took the rated novice hurdle by half a length from the Liz Doyle-trained Tom McGreevy at odds of 13/8 favourite. It was a third success of 2022 for the five-year-old.

The Dingle jockey and Elliott also had a runner-up at Bellewstown on Saturday followed by a visit to the winners’ enclosure at the Meath racecourse. Finishing second with Douglas Dc in the opening novice hurdle, Kennedy and Elliott landed the maiden hurdle with The Friday Man. A very well-backed 2/1 favourite, the Michael Hanrahan-owned five-year-old led after the second last hurdle and went clear from the final flight to win by six lengths from 25/1 chance David Garrick.
