Runner-up in her first three bumpers, the 4/6 favourite Gaoth Chuil made no mistake at the fourth attempt when readily landing the finale at Tipperary.

Sent straight to the front and kept wide for better ground by Derek O'Connor, the daughter of Harzand enjoyed an uncontested lead and opened up in the straight to beat Resilent Front and Scopello by fourteen lengths and twelve lengths.

Winning trainer Ted Walsh said: "She was entitled to do that with her runs and is a well bred filly out of a mare (Elyaadi) that stayed well and was second in the Ascot Stakes and Queen Alexandra Stakes at Royal Ascot for John Queally.

"She is a half-sister to (stablemate winners) Dewcup and Minnie Dahill and Micheal (Ryan) bred them all. She is a lovely mare and loved the ground.

"I'm not a big bumper person so she will go jumping hurdles now. She wants a trip, she is bred that way, and she'd win a two-mile flat maiden. She is a lovely sweet mare who jumps a hurdle well."
