Clonmel winner for Matthew Smith

Matthew Smith

Kilmessan trainer Matthew Smith enjoyed the result from Clonmel this evening after where Prince Garyantle won a novice handicap hurdle in fine style.

With Ashbourne jockey Andrew Lynch on board it was a real Meath success as Prince Garyantle followed up on wins at Tramore and Kilbeggan.

Lynch was clear approaching the second last and the seven-year-old, which made most of the running, won by over 20 lengths.

Another Meath success was the win of A Sizing Network which also made the running to land the Captain Christy Rated Novice Chase for jockey Robbie Power.


At Sligo yesterday Gordon Elliott had a double, but there was also a welcome winner for young Navan jockey Danny Hand who partnered the aptly-named Some Drama to victory in a chase - all the races were over fences - for Ratoath handler Dermot McLoughlin.

Hand and Some Drama made all the running and survived a mistake at the last with the jockey doing well to stay on board.


After the success he achieved with Labaik winning at Cheltenham, Gordon Elliott may not have as a big a task on his hands when eight-year-old Pallasator runs over hurdles. The former Group 2 winner for Sir Mark Prescott is owned by Qatar Racing Limited and will join Elliott's team of national hunt horses - but don't rule out a run on the flat either.
