County Cork trainer James Dullea was full of praise for Conor Orr as the Rathmullan conditional rider partnered Moscowsowhat to win the beginners’ chase at Tramore on Thursday.
The 7/1 chance led over the second last fence and beat the Robert Tyner-trained 11/8 favourite Exit To The West by a length.
Dullea commented: “The plan was to sit mid-division but Conor gave him a very intelligent ride to have him closer to the pace. I’m over the moon for the racing club. They had to wait a bit longer than I thought because I felt this fellow would do a job for them over hurdles!”
