Dinaria Des Obeaux completed a Thurles four-timer for Gordon Elliott and Gigginstown House Stud in the Coolmore National Hunt Sires Irish EBF Mares Novice Chase.

The five-year-old had come up short in a couple of Grade Ones but was much more suited to this Grade Two test back against her own sex, and travelled in second behind pacesetter Magic Of Light.

Youcantcallherthat was hot on their heels when getting the second-last all wrong, effectively ending her challenge, and while 11-10 favourite Dinaria Des Obeaux could herself have been better when jumping the final obstacle in a slight lead, she was kept up to her work by Jack Kennedy — who was completing a treble — and passed the post eight lengths to the good over Magic Of Light.

Elliott said: “She was entitled to do that on her Drinmore run and forget about her last run, as she made a few mistakes and was nearly brought down.

“She won’t be going to Cheltenham and I don’t think we have to keep her in her own sex — never say never, but we’ll see as we have a couple of nice mares at the moment. She is a nice mare and has her job done now.”

Elliott also struck on the card with the Kennedy-ridden A Toi Phil and Pete So High, as well as Dortmund Park, who impressed under Davy Russell, all in the maroon and white of Gigginstown.
