Seefood is clear of Sizing Gold and Seriatim at Fairyhouse Seefood is a seriously progressive horse and Kahyasi five-year-old made it three on the bounce when claiming the I.N.H. Stallion Owners EBF Novice Hurdle at Fairyhouse under Bryan Cooper (some compensation for his loss on Wingtips in the first).

Now a dual winner over the two and a half miles at this venue,Seefood led from two out and he showed a good change of gear to quickly settle the issue. Thirteen to eight joint favourite with the winner, Sizing Gold was in pursuit from before the last but he was still three and a quarter lengths adrift at the line.

The long established Lyreen Syndicate ownSeefood and he is trained by Dessie Hughes who remarked: "He was impressive. He jumps quick and he does everything quick. We'll keep him to the novices and see how he gets on.

"I thought it looked like a good race and he moved up and quickened well." (GC & EM)

Will there be another Irish winner at Aintree?

A lot has been said recently about the fact that the Irish contingent at Cheltenham tend to stoke up the fires of Anglo-Irish needle with their flag waving and chest beating due to our incredible success in recent years. As pointed out previously, this is nothing more than a bit of harmless fun that some folk on both sides of the Irish Sea take a little too seriously.
