RED-HOT rider Davy Russell completed a four-timer at Naas on Un Atout, who staked his claim for Supreme Novices' Hurdle glory with a hugely impressive performance.

Russell had scored on Morning Assembly, Solwhit and Tofino Bay, but by far his easiest success came on the Willie Mullins-trained Un Atout, who strolled home at odds of 2-7.

Supreme sponsor William Hill make him 8-1 (from 16) for the Cheltenham Festival opener, a price chance mirrored by Betfred.

Boylesports are 7-1 (from 14), but BetVictor and Paddy Power go 10-1 (from 16 and 14).

Owned by Gigginstown House Stud, Un Atout is also prominent in the betting for the Neptune Investment Management Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham and is generally 10-1 for that.

Mullins said: "He jumped well and was very strong in that ground - he showed plenty of gears.

"He may go for the Deloitte Novice Hurdle in three weeks and I won't be anxious to step him up in trip for the moment."
