THERE was plenty of good supporting action at a Fairyhouse meeting which has occasionally been done no favours compared to other major jumps Festivals by the timing of Easter.

Augusta Kate took the Mares’ Novice Hurdle Championship on Sunday from her odds-on stablemate Let’s Dance with a solid 145 timefigure which suggests this was a decent test of stamina in the end. Augusta Kate probably needs every yard of this two and a half miles, whereas the opposite may be true of Let’s Dance.
