Found A Fifty put in an impressive display to run away with the Rich History & Well Chosen Maiden Hurdle by nine and a half lengths.

Gordon Elliott's front-running six-year-old faced what looked to be a strong challenge from 4/6 favourite Parmenion on the approach to the penultimate flight.

He still had plenty to offer, though, as he had the favourite under pressure before the final flight. Parmenion soon cracked as Found A Fifty powered away from him on the run-in for a wide-margin victory under Davy Russell at 4/1. Tag Man was another 15 lengths adrift in third at 7/4 as the field came in at intervals.

Russell said: “He's got a lot of pace, we really liked him and he jumped really well.

“He's (Elliott) given him the time to fill into himself as he has a big frame.

“He likes to run and he was hard on himself there. He jumped great.”

Found A Fifty won a point-to-point in November 2021 for Mark Fahey and was runner-up on track debut for Elliott in a Navan bumper last November.
