Life In The Park gives de Bromhead a double
Life In The Park brought up a quick-fire double for Henry de Bromhead in race two at Tramore.
Mike O'Connor sent him on from flagfall and the pair had a healthy four-length advantage setting out on the final circuit of this extended 2m4f Adare Manor Opportunity Maiden Hurdle.
The lead was increased three but O'Connor then got a breather into his mount.
“He’d a lovely first run and I don’t know what happened at Leopardstown. Maybe as everyone was saying we weren’t right or he wasn’t right. He looked fine and seemed fine but was very disappointing," said de Bromhead.
“We gave him a break and he’s gown another inch or two. He’s a lovely big, imposing horse and you can see it’s all about chasing for him.
“He has a good pedigree and we had high hopes for him. He might just be a big baby. He still looked very green around there so he’ll improve plenty.
“We’ll see what mark he gets and he may go for the three-mile handicap hurdle at Punchestown.”
