Lets Go Champ left clear to get off mark in Tipperary


Itstimetomoveon crashed out at the final flight to leave 4/9 favourite Lets Go Champ to come home clear in the first division of the extended 2m4f maiden hurdle in Tipperary.

The front pair moved clear on the run to the final flight and Itstimetomoveon certainly had the favourite on the stretch as the pursuer came under a drive from Rachael Blackmore.

Everything changed in jumping, though, as Aidan Kelly was given no chance of maintaining the partnership on the leader who took a plunging fall which unfortunately proved fatal.

Henry de Bromhead's Lets Go Champ was able to stride in by some eight and a-half lengths from Kansas City Star (10/3). Pray Tell was another couple of lengths back in third at 33/1.

Blackmore said: "He picked up, but there was definitely going to be a battle on after the last.

"He handled the ground, but it is getting summery. He has had his problems and hopefully he'll progress from that."
