Forge Meadow takes Red Mills Trial Hurdle glory

Forge Meadow Forge Meadow gave Jessica Harrington and Robbie Power a big-race double at Gowran Park with a resolute victory in the Red Mills Trial Hurdle.
The 7-4 chance put the pace to the race but looked beaten when headed by a rejuvenated Identity Thief.
He could not put it to bed, though, and Forge Meadow stuck her head down and answered every question asked of her by Power, getting back up by a length and a half.
The Grade Three event had been weakened by the defection of Mick Jazz, who was a non-runner due to a temperature.
Harrington and Power also teamed up to land the Red Mills Chase with Cheltenham Gold Cup contender Our Duke.
