Jack Foley availed of another good opportunity as he guided the 11/10 favourite Stratum to victory in the He'llberemembered Hurdle.

A winner of the 2019 Cesarewitch at Newmarket and of this summer’s Queen Alexandra Stakes at Royal Ascot, the 8-year-old tracked the pace before improving to lead two out.

Willie Mullins’ charge went away to beat Doctor Duffy by six lengths and register his third win over hurdles.

After partnering his 24th winner of the campaign, 5lb claimer Foley commented: “It was a nice performance, he was obviously the best horse in the race and he did it well.

“He's a high class horse on the Flat and it was a nice opportunity for him to get his head in front again over hurdles.

“He was very good, he winged the last and galloped out to the line.

“That's my fourth winner for Willie and he's very good with opportunities for me. Everyone in the yard is brilliant, Ruby (Walsh) and David Casey are always looking out for me and Paul Townend is good for advice.”
