Mor the merrier for Elliott

first_img The County Meath handler took over Realt Mor (10-1) from Nicky Richards earlier this year, and the eight-year-old quickly opened up a big advantage on the rest of the field in the Grade One contest. It seemed likely he would be swallowed up when the pack closed in towards the end of the back straight, but Davy Condon had given him a breather and kicked on again. Although stablemate Mount Benbulben and also Mikael D’Haguenet and Dedigout threw down challenges, Realt Mor found plenty to take top honours. Realt Mor produced a superb front-running display to claim the Powers Gold Cup at Fairyhouse on a red-letter day for trainer Gordon Elliott, who sent out four winners in all including Roi Du Mee in the big race at Cork.
