Biscuit makes breakthrough in opener

Whotookthebiscuit produced a game front-running performance to land the opening Kilsheelan Maiden Hurdle at Clonmel.

Henry de Bromhead's charge was soon disputing in the two-miler, for horses that hadn't been placed previously.

The Milan mare stuck on well in the closing stages for Mike O'Connor to post a length-and-three-quarters victory over Sirekoff

The 10/3 winner had been placed in a point-to-point for Paul Power and was making her third outing for de Bromhead this afternoon.

"I'm delighted for her owner/breeder Jimmy McCarthy (from Cork) whose last winner was ten years ago in Limerick but in fairness we haven't had many runners,” said de Bromhead.

“We were actually surprised we still had his colours at home and I'm delighted to give him a winner as he is a great supporter.

"It looked a suitable race to have a go at and Mikey did a great job on her. She's a fun mare, we'll see what mark she gets and Limerick at Christmas would fit in nicely for her."
