Noel Meade's high-class hurdler Go Native (5-4 favourite) continued his recuperation with an effortless victory in the (QR) Race at Galway.

The nine-year-old can list a Supreme Novices' Hurdle, a Fighting Fifth and a Christmas Hurdle on his roll of honour but he missed over two years before returning to action at Navan earlier this month.

He showed there his engine was still intact but got tired close home and finished third, however, there was never any dangers for Nina Carberry this time.

Travelling wide throughout, she cruised into the lead and despite opposition of the quality of Forpadydeplasterer and Staying Article, Go Native sprinted clear to beat Cry For The Moon by six and a half lengths.
