Mitchouka (Creachadoir) makes it 3 wins from 6 runs since being purchased privately for Gordon Elliott and Gigginstown Stud.
He set the standard in this contest by virtue of two solid runs behind the highly regarded Espoir D’Allen and a previous wide-margin win at this track and at Punchestown, the latter occasion accounting for Gavin Cromwell’s subsequent Aintree winner Famous Milly.
Mitchouka jumped well and was in complete command all the way up the straight.
After the race trainer Elliott said. ” He’s done nothing wrong so far. That was his third win and he’s run well behind Gavin(Cromwell)’s good horse Espoir D’Allen a couple of times. We’ll think about running him at Leopardstown’s big meeting early next month and he could be one for the Fred Winter at Cheltenham”.
