Incredible power clears on run-in to open account
Mr Incredible powered clear on the run-in to claim the spoils in the second division of the I.N.H. Stallion Owners EBF Maiden Hurdle at Naas.
The race developed into a duel between the market leaders in the two-mile-three contest as Henry de Bromhead's charge joined front-running favourite Glens Of Antrim at the second last.
There was nothing to split the pair down to the final flight and both made slight mistakes.
Mr Incredible was quicker away to grab the advantage and asserted in the closing stages to record a four-and-a-half length success over the 4/6 shot.
The 11/8 victor had chased home easy winner Gaillard Du Mesnil on his 'track' debut at Leopardstown having also been runner-up on his sole point-to-point start.
“Rachael was brilliant on him. They really raced over the last two and he was good and gutsy. He handled that ground well which was good to see as well,” said de Bromhead.
“He’s a lovely big chasing prospect, still a big baby and very raw. Colin Bowe recommended him to us and I’m delighted to have him.”
