Masterful Mitchouka secures Winning Fair spoils at Fairyhouse

Sat 24 Feb 2018

Mitchouka gave weight and a beating to his rivals in the Grade Three Winning Fair Juvenile Hurdle at Fairyhouse.

Gordon Elliott's charge was sent off the 4-9 favourite despite his weight penalty and Davy Russell was motionless on him as he cruised into the lead turning for home.

After opening up a comfortable lead approaching the last, Mitchouka only had to be pushed out to beat Mastermind by two and a quarter lengths.

"He's grand horse and he keeps winning in fairness to him," said Elliott.

"I keep knocking him, saying 'he is what he is', but he's won three or four races and if we had a few more like him we'd be alright.

"He'll go for the Fred Winter now all being well. He'll get to the last on the bridle but I don't know if he'll get up the hill, that would be the worry."
