Irish/World Racing Round-Up - 25/02/2019

Fairyhouse and Naas showcased the two cards from Ireland over the weekend, as the Cheltenham Festival is now within reach.

Situated in Ratoath in County Meath, Fairyhouse hosted the Grade Three Bobbyjo Chase, which was won by the Willie Mullins-trained Rathvinden.

The 11yo - winner of the Four-miler at Cheltenham last season, opened his account for the season in style by overcoming a sea of Gigginstown contenders.

Attentions now look set to be turned towards Aintree in favour of a return to Prestbury Park, and as a result of his immaculate return to the track on Saturday, he has been installed to sit alongside Tiger Roll at the head of the market for the Grand National.

Mullins also landed the spoils with Eight And Bob in the Tommy Carberry Handicap Hurdle, whilst Gordon Elliott took the final two races with Graineyhill and Fury Road - the latter who was a comfortable winner of the NH Flat Race.

Meanwhile, Sunday saw seven different trainers taste victory across an eight-race card at Naas.

Robcour took the Grade B Handicap Chase but not with the selection most would have had beforehand.

Impact Factor disappointed for Jessica Harrington after three consecutive seconds, but only managed fifth this time, leaving Henry De Bromhead's Poker Party to confirm the form with Stowaway Forever.

Chosen Mate - pipped by Sinoria at Punchestown a couple of weeks ago, returned to winning ways under Davy Russell, before the Grand National winning jockey could not hunt down Cadmium, when riding Doctor Phoenix in the next - the WhatOddsPaddy? Chase.

Cadmium - trained by Willie Mullins, had been consistent in all his outings over fences, and finally got his head back in front under Paul Townend.

As for elsewhere in the world, Silvestre De Sousa bagged a couple of winners at Sha Tin in Hong Kong - the Aussie-trained Refined Treasure in the Sam Shing Handicap, after Voyage Star took the Lung Yat Handicap.

The day though belonged once again to Zac Purton, who was in the winners enclosure six times on the ten-race card.

Down under, Winx's regular jockey was amongst the winners at Caulfield on Sunday.

On a day packed with group action, Bowman was aboard James Cummings' Alizee in the Group One Yulong Futurity Stakes, before running away with the Group Two Carlton Draught Peter Young Stakes with Avilius - also for Cummings.

There are four meetings in the UK today, with Ayr, Plumpton and Uttoxeter taking centre stage for the racing over jumps, before Wolverhampton is the place to be for Monday Night Racing.
