Pravalaguna made all to run out a facile winner of the Listed BBA Ireland Limited Opera Hat Mares Chase at Naas.

This two-mile contest remembering the magnificent mare Opera Hat, a nine-time winner at Naas who went on to Aintree Grade One glory, attracted seven.

As the race got underway, the grey Baie Des Iles disputed the early lead with Pravalaguna and Teacher’s Pet.

Pravalaguna and Paul Townend pressed on from Teacher’s Pet and she headed the field out onto their full circuit.

The leader began to stretch her field down the back and took the third last well clear of Teacher’s Pet, with Baie Des Iles further back and the rest well behind.

Into the home straight, her two nearest pursuers closed, but Pravalaguna went away again and with a fine jump at the last, ran out an impressive winner from Baie Des Iles, with Teacher’s Pet third.

Pravalaguna was continuing the fine run of Willie Mullins in this contest.
