Denise Foster gets off the mark since taking over the reins from the suspended Gordon Elliott

Defi Bleu gave Denise Foster a definite start by giving her a first winner since taking over at Cullentra Stables. Trainer Gordon Elliott is currently serving a suspension. Defi Bleu took the Tomcoole Farm Ltd. Beginners Chase at Wexford.

Ridden by Jack Kennedy and owned by Gigginstown House Stud, the eight-year-old got the better of the 8-13 favourite Opposites Attract by two and half lengths.

With only her third runner since she officially took charge, Defi Bleu ran out a 4/1 winner in the heavy going at Wexford.

Kennedy said: “His first run over fences was very promising. He fell the second day and disappointed after that. It’s lovely to get off the mark over fences with him.

“That’s a great start for Sneezy (Foster) – and long may it continue. Hopefully we will have plenty of luck together now.”
