There was no trouble at all for Fighting Fit (13/8 into 6/5 favourite on the show) in the Connolly's RED MILLS Ladies Handicap Hurdle at Thurles.
Following up on his Punchestown victory from December, Fighting Fit was also doubling the score of winning owner J P McManus on the day. His Guetapan Collonges won for Charlie Longsdon at Huntingdon earlier.
The Limerick man went on to make it three with Laskadine (Ben Haslam) at Sedgefield.
At Thurles with Aine O’Connor in the plate, Philip Dempsey’s Fighting Fit was settled behind the leaders, and was sixth at the halfway stage.
He improved to challenge on the inner two out, disputing between horses before the last where he made a slight mistake.
