Psycho: Had to settle for second

Dermot Weld's New Phase (7/2) beat Psycho and Kempes to complete back-to-back wins in the Follow Us On Facebook Hurdle at Cork on Wednesday.

The seven-year-old winner was third in the betting behind Psycho and Kempes but was always going well behind the Willie Mullins-trained 5/4 favourite who took them along.

David Casey was soon giving out the distress signals on Kempes in the straight and New Phase bounded clear under Davy Russell to win by two-and-a-quarter lengths.

Psycho (13/8) stayed on for second with Kempes a well-beaten third.

"It was a very good performance by horse and rider," said the trainer's son and also winning owner, Kris Weld.

"New Phase probably doesn't get the credit he deserves. He's a very good horse and the older he gets the better he's handling the soft ground.

"Today was the plan and we hadn't looked beyond that. He jumped well."
