Davy Russell backed up his Grand National win on Tiger Roll by winning on his first ride back on board Decision Time at Tramore on Sunday afternoon, Sky Sports report.
Brimming with confidence after his first National winner, Russell brought home the 13-8 favourite with a wonderfully timed charge.
Russell was seemingly struggling after being held up for most of the race, however, his perfectly timed surge meant he took the lead just before the final fence.
Decision Time, a John Kiely-trained seven-year-old eventually won by three-quarters of a length ahead of Beliou Le Fume, who’s late burst came in vain.
Talking after the race, trainer Kiely was full of praise for Russell:
It’s a thrill to be able to give Davy his first winner after yesterday. I doubted that he would turn up today, because he was dragged here and there and everywhere! He gave Tiger Roll a great ride. It’s lovely to witness sport like this.
Russell’s winning spree then continued later in the day when he took Monatomic to victory in the Waterford & Tramore Racecourse Family Fun Afternoon Maiden Hurdle.
All in all, a good weekend for the 38-year-old.
