Fairyhouse treble delight for Elliott
Gordon Elliott enjoyed a 64/1 treble at Fairyhouse, where Eclair De Beaufeu (100/30) took the featured conditions hurdle under Jack Kennedy, beating Ted Walsh's Oscars Den by five lengths.
"I'd say he's improving the whole time. I like the way he quickened from the home turn," said Elliott.
Kennedy was also on board 9/4 winner Getaway John, a promising bumper horse having his third run over timber in maiden hurdle.
"I'd say he just couldn't handle the real heavy ground in Cork. Jack said he was a different horse today - he jumped and travelled and did everything right," added Elliott, who then saddled the first two home in the bumper as Lisa O'Neill's mount Thunder Down Under (4/1) beat Barry O'Neill on Cats For Cash.
Father Jedd was a 25/1 winner of the handicap hurdle for John Ryan and Tommy Brett, while Willie Mullins scored with his only runner as Ifyoucatchmenow (7/4 favourite) won the mares' maiden hurdle under Paul Townend.
