Hourigan, Heskin on mark again

Michael Hourigan and Adrian Heskin continue to make the headlines and were on the mark again last evening with False Economy (5/1) in the Point-to-Point Evening At Tipperary Maiden Hurdle.

The pair teamed up with Church Island in the bet365 Chase at Sandown last Saturday, after which Hourigan praised the talent of his young rider (18), tipping him for the very top.

A stop-off at Wetherby the following day paid another dividend as Thyne For Deploy did the honours.

False Economy will be kept on the go after quickening clear to score by a convincing seven lengths.


There was a surprise in the Kedrah House Stud Handicap Hurdle as 16/1 chance Castle Anshan edged Tipper Road by a length, with the 9/4 favourite Night Spark pulled up.

Paul Flynn's Pallasmore (14/1) was another big-priced winner when taking the Portrait Gallery At Kilfeacle Stud Handicap.

However, punters got firmly back on track as Wickham Street landed a gamble in the Glenview and Rathbarry Studs Beginners Chase. Backed into even-money favouritism, Tommy Stack's six-year-old trotted up by nine lengths.
