A Real Leader
The Cheltenham Festival's dynamic trainer/jockey partnership followed up last week's prestigious awards by scoring again at Limerick yesterday. The Gordon Elliott-trained Lackaneen Leader, partnered by Davy Russell, won the Kerry Group EBF Shannon Spray Mares Novice Hurdle. This Oscar filly was a 4/1 chance in the Grade Three contest. For a moment it looked as though Moyhenna, aiming for three-in-a-row, had been allowed too much of a lead as the field headed into the straight. The County Meath handler's mare, however, found a little extra under pressure and went on to win by a length and a quarter.
W-Cs for Aintree!
Distinguished owner and horse-racing son are aiming for further glory at Aintree next month. The Warren Greatrex-trained Theatre Territory, owned by Robert Waley-Cohen, will line up in the Randox Health Topham Chase on April 13 and son, Sam will be aboard. The father/son partnership have won this two-and-three-quarter-mile handicap chase twice before with Rajdhani Express in 2015 and Liberthine in 2006. The King's Theatre mare was last seen finishing third to Fergal Obrien's Master Dee in the Betdaq Chase at Kempton last month.
The competition for the Irish trainers' championship continues to hot up when the two rivals face each other in the UCC Horse Racing Society Hurdle at Cork this afternoon. Gordon Elliott, who is leading Willie Mullins by some £400,000 probably has the slight edge with Last Minute Man, ridden once again by Davy Russell. The County Carlow king opposes him with the Paul Townend-ridden Antey, who is seeking his first win after three runs, all of which were over two miles. So the Lord Of England gelding is also facing a step-up in trip.
