Sunday Round Up – Mallowney classy at Fairyhouse
The feature race of the day at Fairyhouse went the way of a classy Mallowney who dominated his field under Davy Russell for trainer Timothy Doyle.
The 9 year old was second on his last start when narrowly denied at Cork but put this race to bed with a coupleof fences still to jump having traveled extremely well on the soft ground to record a facile 10 lengths success in the Underwriting Exchange Dan Moore Memorial Handicap Chase.
In second place was favourite Bright New Dawn for Sandra Hughes and Bryan Cooper but they never looked like troubling the winner who will now look to the Newlands Chase at Naas for his next start but is not being aimed at Cheltenham this term.
Trainer Doyle was deligthed “He never runs a bad race and has beaten two Grade 2 horses with ease, his end of season target is the Boylesports Champion Chase at the Punchestown Festival.”
A historic day at Chelmsford City Racecourse with their first meeting seeing a hatrick of winners for the Godolphin team very much the highlight for those lucky to attend their first race day. Tryster landed the opener, Blue Aegean the third race and Tempus Temporis scored in the Betsi Golden Mile at 2.50pm.
At Kelso the gallant Lie Forrit recorded a brave win in the Veterans Chase returning a well backed 15/8f for trainer Lucinda Russell with Peter Buchanan in the saddle. Taking them along a good pace and having buckets of reserves to repel the oncoming challengers the 11 year old proved too good for his rivals this afternoon.
In the penultimate race the 5/4f Scrafton under James Reveley for John Quinn had the race at this mercy over the last in front but stopped to a walk on the way to the line to be collared by 14/1 Medicine Hat much to the bemusement of the crowd in a remarkable end to the Juvenile Hurdle at 3.10pm.
