Nouveau Moulin followed up her course and distance win from Limerick in January when prevailing in the Jack Absolute (Ladies) Mares INH Flat Race under Katie Walsh at Greenmount Park.

Joe O'Keeffe's charge hit the front a furlong and a half out and she kept going well to see off the luckless Jane Mangan on the well-backed favourite, Kilbarry Beauty, by two and a half lengths.

O'Keeffe said: "She's a lovely, gorgeous mare and she was working lovely at home.

"I might give her a spin on the flat or else maybe go hurdling.

"I'll have to speak to her owner (his father James who is 95).

"She did well to give away weight to everything there." (TW & EM)

Might Bite To Prove His Worth Next Season

There is not much attention given to national hunt racing in the summer months, by punters or by the media. It is, of course, understandable given that our attention is focused on the flat season: the action at Royal Ascot, the Classics and the rest of the elements that define the summer racing season. Some punters might have a dabble at an ante post bet for Cheltenham next year, but by and large we forget about it until the autumn.
