Michael O’Sullivan struck aboard Jazzy Matty in the Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle to cap a fine opening day for the young rider who earlier took the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle with Marine Nationale.
The 18-1 scorer led home an all-Irish one-two-three-four to get Gordon Elliott off the mark for the week.
Jazzy Matty was neck-and-neck with his competitors heading onto the final straight, before just poking his nose ahead as they crossed the finish line.
