Slowmotion opened her account over fences in the Rushes Supervalu & Lemongrass Restaurant European Breeders Fund Mares Beginners Chase at Naas.

Joseph O’Brien’s Grade Two-winning hurdler only made it as far as the first fence on her chasing debut at Wexford in November and reverted to the smaller obstacles over Christmas when runner-up to Let’s Dance at Leopardstown.

The JP McManus-owned mare got the better of Elusive Ivy by a length and three-quarters.

“It was nice to win a chase with her. She seemed to jump fairly well, although the loose horse wasn’t a big help,” said O’Brien.

“She had a tough race in Leopardstown where they went at it the whole way so we’ll give her a bit of time now before we go again.

“She can go up in trip and is versatile.”
