Grand National winner Rachael Blackmore completed a first four-timer today at Naas, dodging mayhem, and progressing from an unpromising position, to land an incident-packed Mongey Communications Beginners Chase on Mr Incredible (11/10f).
Mr Incredible later looked beaten at the third last fence and while Blackmore saved ground on the final bend, the pair were just fourth jumping the last. The Westerner-gelding finished powerfully however, edging past Indiana Jones close home, for a two and a quarter lengths win.
Winning trainer Henry de Bromhead, earlier successful with the Blackmore-partnered Captain Guinness, later reported “Rachael said he suddenly took off after the second last. He’s a funny fella at home so we haven’t done much but he would strike me as a stayer.”
“We bought him off Colin Bowe after he was placed in a point-to-point and he came well recommended. Chasing is his game.”
