Irish/World Racing Round Up - 03/12/2018

Aside from Apples Jade's scintillating display in the Hatton's Grace Hurdle, Gordon Elliott enjoyed much success at Fairyhouse on Sunday, with four wins in total on the day.

Elliott began proceedings in the best possible way, when holding all the aces in the opener, with Chief Justice denying short price favourite Coeur Sublime, in turn leading home a 1-2 for the Irish marksman.

Delta Work - who won the Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle at Cheltenham, made it three wins from three over fences, before Envoi Allen threw his name into the hat for the Champion Bumper, completing a 54/1 four-fold for Elliott.

In America, the Aiden O'Brien-trained Mendelssohn finished fourth in the Cigar Mile, and as a result, was retired to stud by Coolmore.

The 3yo - who was second in the Dewhurst as a juvenile, was fifth in the Breeders Cup Classic last month to Accelerate, but will be remembered for his emphatic display in the UAE Derby at Meydan.

Patternrecognition won the Grade 1 feature at Aqueduct on Saturday, for Chad Brown and Jose Ortiz.

On Sunday, the best of the action abroad came from Sha Tin in Hong Kong, where Silvestre de Sousa rode two winners.

He scored aboard Travel First in the Carnarvon Handicap on the AW - a surface the British Champion Jockey knows all too well, before completing the double in the final race (The Salisbury Handicap) on the turf.

Zac Purton recorded a hat-trick, with the pick of the wins coming aboard the Aussie-trained Perfect Match in the Cameron Handicap.
