Flare does the job at Cork
Flaxen Flare will be pointed towards the Ladbroke Hurdle at Ascot in December following his facile success at Cork.
The Cheltenham Festival-winning four-year-old was rarely out of second gear in the Corkracecourse.ie Hurdle and breezed a length clear as the 1/9 favourite.
Flaxen Flare, who claimed the Fred Winter Handicap Hurdle in March, was last seen finishing second in the Galway Hurdle.
Elliott, who won the Ladbroke last year with Cause Of Causes, said: "It was an ideal race for him and he jumped around nice and safe.
"He'll have a little break and come back for the Ladbroke Hurdle at Ascot. We might find a little Flat race for him as well."
