Concertista maintained Willie Mullins’ 100 per cent record in the five runnings of the Daylesford Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle at Cheltenham with a wide-margin success.
Just touched off by stablemate Eglantine Du Seuil 12 months ago, Concertista went into this race still a maiden – but put that right in emphatic fashion.
Daryl Jacob brought the six-year-old, owned by Simon Munir and Isaac Souede, with a powerful run in the straight and the 9-2 chance shot past stablemate Dolcita as she and stormed up the hill to win by 12 lengths.
Rayna’s World passed a host of rivals on the run-in to grab third place for trainer Phil Kirby and jockey Thomas Dowson at odds of 100-1.
