Robin Des Mana performance delights Elliott
Gordon Elliott hailed Robin Des Mana's display at Punchestown and intends to stick to two-mile handicap chases with the six-year-old.
Robin Des Mana claimed a 19 length-victory as closest challenger Surrogate Lad fell at the final fence, with Thirsty Work finishing as the eventual runner-up in the Goffs Punchestown Invitational Sale Handicap Chase on Sunday.
Elliott admits he may have enjoyed a slice of luck but he was delighted with the performance regardless.
"He's got his act together and he's running well," said Elliott, as reported by Sporting Life.
"We might have been a bit of a fortunate winner, as the horse was going well behind us, but jumping is the name of the game.
"It's great for Brendan Scully (owner) who has been with us a long time. It's nice to get another winner for him.
"We'll just keep him to those two-mile handicap chases."
