Benbulben opens chasing accountHeadlines
Mount Benbulben

Mount Benbulben got his fencing career back on track when easing to an ultimately smooth success in the Nicky Connors - Lifetime In Racing Beginners Chase.

A Grade Two winner last season as a novice hurdler, the Gordon Elliott-trained seven-year-old was third on his chasing debut at Naas in October and fell at Punchestown last month.

Davy Condon's mount made a bad mistake on this occasion too, at the second fence, but slowly recovered his momentum.

The 8-13 favourite clearly has a big engine and improved strongly moving to two out, and despite a minor error at the last, he cruised home from Mackeys Forge, who had disputed matters for a long way.

Elliott said: "Mount Benbulben has got a right engine if we can get his jumping right. He is a bit sketchy and it was a good performance considering he was nearly on the ground (at the second fence).

"We'll look for something over Christmas, he's entered in the three-mile Fort Leney Chase at Leopardstown and he'd have no trouble staying that trip."
