Tom Tate cemented his new partnership with Jim Hay as Mull Of Dubai sprinted clear in the 10-furlong Bank Of Ireland Handicap at Chester.
Hay dispersed all of his horses from Stan Moore’s care at the turn of the year with Tate benefiting to the tune of five new additions.
He sent out his first winner in the pink and green colours as John Egan pinged clear off the bend to collect by a length.
Tate said of the 13-2 winner: “He is a really brilliant little horse and is so tough.
“He has won on faster ground and over a shorter trip than normal. I am just learning about him, but I like what I see.”
