Restricted trainer Paul Fahey was delighted to see his He’llberemembered land the beginners’ chase at Down Royal with Shane Butler in the saddle.

The 2/1 favourite led before the second last and kept on for a facile six and a half length verdict over Johannisberger (11/4). Madam Bovary (9/2) was a length and three parts further away in third

Paul Fahey, who has four horses in training, said: “He had a nice run in Galway but got bumped and missed the last. That was good form.

“I was very hopeful today. I said to Shane that with a clear run he should go close. He’ll run next in an amateur flat race at Dundalk then the final.

"Hopefully I'll get a double in the last with Lots Of Memories."

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.
