TEMPLE Guiting trainer Jonjo O’Neill enjoyed a double at Catterick in a rare excursion to the North Yorkshire venue.

O’Neill had fielded just five starters there in the last five seasons but this time sent a team of three to the course.

Although Tell Me Y was a beaten favourite in the longdistance handicap hurdle, the Cotswold yard were soon celebrating.

However, their 2-1 hope Get Back In Line won a competitive European Breeders’ Fund ‘National Hunt’ Novices’ Hurdle under Tony McCoy.

O’Neill, McCoy and owner JP McManus quickly completed their brace as 11-4 favourite Kandari took the Dine And View At Catterick Races Handicap Chase.

Meanwhile, Taquin Du Seuil will not run again before the Cheltenham Festival but his race is yet to be decided.

The Challow Hurdle winner could tackle the Neptune Investment Management Novices’ Hurdle over two miles and five furlongs and the three-mile Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle.

O’Neill believes the sixyear- old has plenty of experience and he is looking forward to the French import running on better ground.
