Won In The Dark: Finished second

Won In The Dark: Finished second

Mossey Joe's return to the racecourse ended in defeat as he finished last of three behind Gimli's Rock in the Handicap at Cork.

The Declan McNamara-trained nine-year-old has a really progressive profile but came to grief when in the process of running a blinder in the Champion Novice Chase at the Punchestown Festival in April.

Reunited with Barry Geraghty back over hurdles, Mossey Joe (1-3 favourite) attempted to make all of the running in this three-mile contest.

It had looked pretty straightforward for McNamara's inmate, but he suddenly ran out of juice, which allowed Gimli's Rock (11-2) the opportunity to take the lead two out.

Mossey Joe was not given a tough time thereafter as Won In The Dark finished second.
