Aramax (15/2) delivered a 1019/1 four-timer for The Cheltenham Festival’s winning-most owner JP McManus when powering home to win the Grade 3 Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle.
Wins for Champ (Grade 1 RSA Insurance Novices’ Chase), Dame De Compagnie (Grade 3 Coral Cup) and Easysland (Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase) were the other successful legs of the McManus four-timer.
Mark Walsh drove the juvenile home a length clear of Night Edition (16/1, David Pipe/Tom Scudamore), with another Gordon Elliott runner, Saint D’oroux (14/1), a further three lengths back in third.
The County Meath handler said:
“Mark gave the winner a great ride, giving him a lovely bit of room the whole way around and he jumped well. We always thought this was the right race to go for.”
