The now Gordon Elliott-trained Presenting Percy impressed in landing the Listed boomerang.ie Chase at Thurles this afternoon.
The former Cheltenham Festival winner had enough to see off the challenge of a strong field, including Kemboy and Monalee to register a six-and-a-half lengths victory on his seasonal reappearance.
Willie Mullins' Kemboy's chances were hampered by a poor jump at the last with Monalee finishing another couple of lengths back in third as Presenting Percy won for the first time since January of last year.

“He did it very well," winning jockey Jack Kennedy said after the race. "He had race-fitness on his side but he put in an exhibition of jumping and quickened up well at the back of the second-last.
“I had sat on him previously at home, but he is very straightforward and is a dream to ride. He jumps and travels away and I was happy at all stages.
"I was delighted with the way he travelled and I was nearly half-taking him back going across the top I was going that easy.
“That win might do him the world of good and hopefully he can keep going after that.”
