Chigorin sees it out best under Blackmore

Chigorin finished with a flourish to land the Lacey's Plumbing & Heating Supplies Maiden Hurdle.

A E90,000 Tattersalls Derby Sale graduate and out of a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Abbyssial, the Shantou five-year-old was a fine third on his sole point-to-point start when in the care of Pat Doyle.

Again third on his debut for current connections at Naas last month, the Henry de Bromhead-trained victor raced mainly in fourth this afternoon.

Switched to the outer away from the second last, the Peter Davies-owned gelding was ridden away from the final flight and stayed on powerfully under Rachael Blackmore, going on to register a three-and-a-half length success.

The Pat Fahy trained Prince Palace (12/1) filled the runner-up spot under Jody McGarvey, while O'Moore Park (4/6f) was a further two-and-a-half lengths away in third.

"We're delighted with that. He stepped forward nicely from Naas, we thought he wanted three miles and he's proved us right," Robbie Power, representing de Bromhead, commented.
