< Si C'etait Vrai tried to make all but he was picked up by the Gordon Elliott-trained Cause Of Causes at the last. The Timeform Betfair Racing Club Ltd-owned Cause Of Causes then went on to prevail cosily.
Elliott said: "He did it nicely. Davy said he blew up after the second last so he didn't knock him around. The plan is the Racing Post Hurdle at Cheltenham.
"Unfortunately he'll get a five pound penalty for that but it's another winner on the board. He needed a good gallop so it worked out grand." (GC & EM)
Wingtips, at odds of 2/9, was an unlucky loser of the fairyhouse.ie Maiden Hurdle as Blacklough made it two from two for Willie Austin.
