"Straightforward" success for Bold Enough
The Henry de Bromhead trained Bold Enough made light work of his five rivals in the Think Print And Design Wexford Novice Chase.
A good third in a handicap hurdle at Aintree last month, the son of Jeremy was expected to go a few places better this afternoon and was sent off the clear 1/2 favourite in the colours of owner Mustafa Elatrash.
Settled just off the pace, the six-year-old made a mistake at the first and moved into a much closer second with a circuit to race.
He pecked slightly on landing at the third last but breezed through to lead approaching the straight, going on to score easily by eight lengths under Mark Walsh.
Walsh said in the aftermath: "It was fairly straightforward. The mistake at the first crowned him because he jumped well after that. He was the highest rated of these and with Sneezy’s horse (Gold Des Bois, who was a late withdrawal due to the going) coming out it made it easier for him. He done it well and is a nice horse for chasing.
"My agent rang me the other day and said that Henry asked for me. I was happy to take the ride."
