Geraghty completes Fairyhouse double


Barry Geraghty secured a second Grade One win at the Fairyhouse Easter Festival as Kylemore Lough claimed the Ryanair Gold Cup Novice Chase.

The Kerry Lee trained seven-year-old beat Outlander over two-and-a-half-miles to win the feature race of Easter Sunday’s card.

Lee, in her first season as a trainer after taking over her father Richard's licence, claimed victory on her first meeting on Irish soil as Geraghty and Kylemore Lough breezed past Outlander in the final stretch after the pair jumped the final fence in tandem.

"It's fantastic" said Lee. "I never had a runner in a Grade One until today and Kylemore Lough battled hard to win with Barry using all his expertise to pull it off.

"Jamie [Moore] also deserves a lot of credit as he's done a massive amount of work with the horse and recommended Barry when he was unable to ride himself because of injury.

"If the ground is right and not too quick Kylemore Lough will come back to Ireland and run at Punchestown next month."

Earlier, Geraghty steered Jer’s Girl to victory in the Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Mares Novice Hurdle Championship Final.
