Journey With Me bounces back to winning ways

Easy Game had won the last three runnings of the Grade Two event and the Paul Townend-ridden Saint Sam slipped the field in the early stages attempting to extend the Closutton winning streak.

Saint Sam was reeled in by the chasing pack with the conclusion of the race approaching and although Mullins’ Appreciate It briefly threatened to get involved, it was Henry de Bromhead’s eight-year-old who took charge in the closing stages to run out a nine-length victor.

“We would have always hoped he was (a Grade One horse). It’s nice to be back on track anyway, this is a great race to win on a brilliant day,” said De Bromhead.

“There are a couple of options at Punchestown, but I haven’t really firmed up on anything. Today was the plan, see how we got on and move on from there.

“He can be a bit silly jumping but he’s getting there, that’s two good rounds of jumping now.”
