RAPID improver LYREEN WONDER gave Gordon Elliott his 100th winner of the season when completing a hat trick in the Fishery Lane Hurdle at Naas where the 11/2 chance was always travelling strongly for Jack Kennedy and beat Wolf Prince by a length and three quarters.

Kennedy said: "We went a good gallop all the way, I probably got there too soon. The ground was a question mark but he handled it well."

Notebook got back to winning ways for Henry de Bromhead and Rachael Blackmore.

The 11/10 hotpot Cash Back crashed out at the first and 7/2 fancy Notebook improved from the back to beat Fakir D'oudairies by 12 lengths.

"That was a good start to the season, he loves Leopardstown and we'll probably go there next" de Bromhead said.

Willie Mullins ran out of luck with Cash Back but the 2/1 favourite Janidil excelled when taking the beginners chase under Mark Walsh.
