O'Keeffe excels on Bojak

Under a never say die Darragh O'Keeffe ride, Bojak collared odds-on favourite Hypotenus in the opener at Cork, the Sign Up To Our Newsletter Maiden Hurdle.

The lesser fancied of two Henry de Bromhead trained runners in the line-up, the Benjamin Halsall-owned victor, who was a dual winner on the level in France, was sent off at 12/1.

With Ben Harvey and Hypotenus setting a strong pace from the front, O'Keeffe was content to settle his mount well off the gallop, jumping four out in a moderate fifth.

Closer in second from the next, he was ridden before the final flight and despite a sloppy jump there, he finished strongly, getting up in the final strides to prevail by half-a-length.

Returned at 1/2, Hypotenus had to settle for second, while Mercury Mission (9/1) was all of 31-lengths back in third under Shane Fitzgerald.

"He ran very well here first time out over hurdles and then I got the tactics wrong at Tramore when he ran too keen," de Bromhead commented.
