Press Association Doyle said: “It was a very good run. He was a little bit babyish with his jumping at the first fence and at the fence going past the stands, but after that he was foot perfect. “I’d say Mouse’s horse stripped a good bit fitter than ours and he’s obviously a very decent horse as well. “We’ll try to find another beginners chase in the next two or three weeks and we’ll look to step him up in grade once we get a bit better ground. “He’s by Martaline and most of his (progeny) – horses like Dynaste, Very Wood and Pique Sous – tend to want better ground. His best performance was on the nice ground at Punchestown in the spring. “We’ll get him out again soon and then hopefully look at something better at Christmas time, as long as the ground is suitable. “Generally you’d have to be very pleased with his run the other day and hopefully there’s plenty to look forward to.” Trainer Liz Doyle is confident there is “plenty to look forward to” with Le Vent D’Antan following his encouraging effort in defeat on his chasing debut at Naas. The talented bumper performer signed off a novice campaign over hurdles with an impressive success at the Punchestown Festival and was a hot favourite to get his fencing career off to a winning start at Woodlands Park on Saturday. Although he came up short, filling the runner-up spot behind the Mouse Morris-trained Real Steel, Doyle is expecting plenty of improvement from her talented youngster.
