Bullet hits Clonmel target

He’ll probably run in a two-and-a-half-mile handicap chase at Punchestown next.” Those who took the 8-11 about Nickname Exit in the Goatenbridge Maiden Hurdle were made to sweat a bit but he eventually prevailed with a little bit up his sleeve. Ruby Walsh had to roust the odds-on favourite along some way from home, but he knuckled down well enough to hit the front at the second-last and kept going to cross the line three and three-quarter lengths ahead of Master Appeal. Walsh said: “He jumped very well and that made the difference.” Hitting the deck in a point-to-point was hardly the ideal preparation, but Knockrea bounced back just 11 days later to claim the spoils in the Ardfinnan Maiden Hurdle. Adrian Heskin produced the 9-2 chance to challenge Tongie at the last and he found more on the run to the line to prevail by two and a quarter lengths. Gold Bullet confirmed himself a chaser of some promise when coming out on top in Clonmel’s Suir Valley Chase. The step out of maiden company saw Jo Go in a better light in the Holy Thursday Handicap Hurdle. Cathy O’Leary’s mare was allowed to go off at 20-1 thanks to three uninspiring performances under Rules, but she relished the rise to three miles and scored by a couple of lengths from Binowagh Bay. Mallards In Flight (11-2) failed to get round when pitched into Grade Two company, but the Happy Easter To All Our Patrons Handicap Chase was more to her liking and Paul Carberry drove her to a length-and-a-half success. The Tom Taaffe-trained seven-year-old was fancied for the Kim Muir at Cheltenham but could only finish in mid-division. However, he seemed to relish this smaller field and after challenging the front-running Baily Green at the second-last, where big danger You Must Know Me fell, he stuck to his task to triumph by two and a half lengths.
