It was the heavily-backed Tangled Web and Nina Carberry in the JP McManus colours who picked up the gauntlet from Bally Longford entering the home straight and asserted in the final furlong to reward punters at 7/4. Charlie Swan’s four-year-old son of Flemensfirth had been 5/2 this morning.
“He’s a lovely horse. He probably won’t run in another bumper. He looks a chaser in the making. He’s very straightforward, has a bit of pace and stays well.
“He seems to go on any ground. He’s a nice horse to look forward to. It’s nice to have a nice horse in the yard as well sell a lot of ours.”

Prideofthecastle (8/1) with a pulled up beside his name provided an upset in the closing bumper at Limerick.
