Brilliant run by versatile Dysart Diamond

THE Mullins-trained Dysart Diamond showed commendable versatility to come back to two miles and win a very competitive looking Holden Plant Rentals Novice Handicap Hurdle. This Eleanor Manning-owned and bred filly, who was last seen over a trip just short of three miles at Killarney in early October, came from way off the pace for David Mullins to lead at the last. She went on to defeat Big King by three and a half lengths and look like a mare that could challenge for a good handicap prize over the next few months.
