Paddy Brennan’s hopes of ending his Cheltenham Festival drought live on after big hope Dysart Enos negotiated a potential banana skin at Doncaster with a comfortable win in the novice hurdle.

The 42-year-old jockey has ridden six Festival winners but none since Pigeon Island won the 2010 Grand Annual Chase on the same day Brennan won the Gold Cup on Imperial Commander.

Dysart Enos remains a 4-1 chance for the Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle after Sunday’s success which confirmed she will be serious opposition to a clutch of Irish-trained contenders in March.

Brennan said: ‘She has a lovely way of racing and takes it in her stride.

‘It is hard to get them but you have to keep dreaming. She has never been beaten and I am really looking forward to Cheltenham. You wouldn’t swap her at the minute.’

Fergal O’Brien also has a lot invested in Dysart Enos, given he has never trained a Festival winner.

O’Brien went closest to breaking his duck when Alaphilippe was beaten a neck in the 2022 Pertemps Handicap Hurdle.
