Rachael Blackmore completed a treble at Killarney today, two winners of which were supplied by trainer Henry De Bromhead, as the pair completed their haul in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF (Mares) Beginners Chase with wide-margin winner Gin On Lime (2/1).

A French winner on debut in July 2019, the daughter of Doctor Dino today returned from a six-months break when routing her rivals in scoring a 42 lengths win over stablemate, and similarly Robcour-owned Tune The Chello.

Reine Fee was in pursuit, but comfortably held, by Gin On Lime when falling at the second-last which did exaggerate the easy winner's margin of victory.

Grand National winner Blackmore, earlier successful on the John Halley trained Mr Tambourine Man and De Bromhead's Cavalry Master, reported “she is a very good mare on her day and really enjoyed it there. She had a little break and seems to have come back from it really well.

“The ground is on the better side of yielding, she jumped and travelled brilliantly and could go through the summer.”
