Henry de Bromhead Racing
The Cathal Don completes Tipp double for de Bromhead
Fusain (6/5 favourite, finished at the rear) and The Cathal Don represented Henry de Bromhead in race two at Tipperary, and it was the last-named that completed a quick double for the Waterford handler in the Tipperary Racecourse Beginners Chase.
In the hands of Sean Flanagan, the 8/1 victor (from 10s) made his second start over racecourse fences a winning one, by eight and a half lengths from Poseidon.
"He had some really good hurdle runs and I was disappointed with him the first day at Clonmel, but as much as he wants good ground, it may have been too quick there. It may also have been a lack of experience but he travelled and jumped much better today,” said de Bromhead.
"I'm delighted for Richard Frayne who let me go chasing with him - I just hoped he'd improve for a fence and it looks like he has.
"Fusain stopped very quickly so we'll have to have a look at him. He is disappointing for a horse who works very well at home."
Havingagoodtime won the opener on the card for de Bromhead with Darragh O’Keeffe up.
