Scorpion strikes again

In-form Scorpion had his third impressive bumper winner in a week when Gigginstown House Stud’s Drunken Counsel (5g Scorpion-Kilbarry Demon, by Bob´s Return) scored at Clonmel on Thursday.

Trained by Gordon Elliott and partnered by Nina Carberry, the five-year-old coasted home four lengths clear of his rivals.

Elliott was delighted with Carberry’s ride and told “She’s different class and the win is really down to her. The ride she gave him was a bit special.”

Drunken Counsel, who was bred by Con O’Keeffe, was winning a week after Knocklayde Express (5m Scorpion-Aupora, by Bob Back) triumphed for Stuart Crawford at Ayr while the Paul Nicholls-trained Great Try (5g Scorpion-Cherry Pie, by Dolpour) won by nine lengths on his debut on Monday.
