WHERE do you start? Probably with the smallest of margins because it just appeared to mean the most. Gordon Elliott had six winners and six seconds at a terrific Festival for the Cullentra maestro and his team. You saw how much was invested in every horse from Seainin’s Envoi nails to Jack Madden’s roars of success on leading his hero into the winner’s enclosure.

We’ve seen Gordon pumped up before. But this was the talking horse, the second coming, the one now usurped by Envoi Allen who, just a day earlier, had won the Ballymore to remain unbeaten.
