Zarak The Brave Triumphs in Limestone Lad Hurdle

Zarak The Brave recaptured his winning ways with a commanding victory in the Limestone Lad Hurdle at Naas, led by jockey Paul Townend. The favoured gelding rallied to a rejuvenating win after a less-than-stellar performance in Tipperary. Willie Mullins expressed satisfaction with Zarak The Brave's performance and contemplates stepping him up in distance, although his participation in the Champion Hurdle remains undecided.

Further victories for Mullins came with Jasmin De Vaux, who impressively won the Lengthen The Odds At BetVictor INH Flat Race, potentially securing a ticket to Cheltenham. Mullins also hinted at upcoming runs for Impaire Et Passe at the Dublin Racing Festival alongside stablemates State Man and Echoes In Rain.

The partnership of Gordon Elliott and Jack Kennedy yielded fruitful results, with Ndaawi showing potential in the Maiden Hurdle and Cleatus Poolaw displaying endurance in the I.N.H. Stallion Owners E.B.F. Maiden Hurdle, with Elliott considering a Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle appearance for Ndaawi.

James Dullea's charge, Kings Halo, under the guidance of Danny Mullins, demonstrated formidable stamina in the Novice Handicap Chase. In the Handicap Hurdle, Eric and Conor McNamara's Millstream Lady won, showcasing her grit and a preference for softer conditions.
