Get Me Out Of Here: Scores at Fairyhouse under a determined McCoy drive

Get Me Out Of Here: Scores at Fairyhouse under a determined McCoy drive

Get Me Out Of Here was an impressive winner of the Keelings Irish Strawberry Hurdle at Fairyhouse on Monday.

Jonjo O'Neill's charge, second in the Coral Cup at Cheltenham, was always travelling strongly in the rear of the field under Tony McCoy and made stealthy headway turning for home.

Tofino Bay (25-1) had already set sail for home at that stage and for a stride or two looked set to spring a surprise but the champion jockey had the move covered.

Going to the front approaching the final flight, the 7-4 favourite was driven right out to gain a deserved success by three-and-three-quarter lengths.

Oilily was back in third while favourite Oscars Well faded tamely out of contention after making a brief move from the rear of the field approaching two out.
