Troytown Chase (Navan)


Will you be touching tweed today? Pippa O’Connor openly encourages it but just be careful who you’re touching or you might end up with a fat lip.

I’m just back from two enjoyable days at Haydock Park. Menorah put up a good fist of a fight in the Betfair Chase so I was very happy with that. Highlight of the weekend had to be the £2 comb exacta result I “fluked” when Thorpe (25/1) beat Oscarteea (11/4) after Kiama Bay fell with the race at it’s mercy. The exacta paid £89.70 so I got that twice which was a stroke of amazing good fortune.

Trojan horses required in the Troytown

A fantastic renewal of Hennessy Gold Cup yesterday as a brave front running Carruthers landed the spoils. It was lovely to see the emotion from Mattie Bachelor just after he won this prestigious race. A truly heart warming story for all those involved with the winner.

On the blog front there was no Hennessy winner but a nice eachway on Planet Of Sound (R Johnson, 14-1 ). The best winner was Chance du Roy (R Johnson, 12-1 ) with winners too in the shape of Prospect Wells (R Walsh, 1-2 fav), Rock On Ruby (R Walsh, 7-2), & Big Buck’s (R Walsh, 1-8 fav).

Today’s fancies are at Navan:

12.15 Nav- Chill & Hurricane Season (e/w).

12.45 Nav- Jetson (e/w).

1.15 Nav- Johnny Two Keys & Man In Black (e/w).

1.50 Nav– Shrapnel (e/w).

2.20 Nav- Golden Kite, Quadrillon & Stonemaster (e/w).

2.50 Nav- Nearest The Pin (win).

3.25 Nav- Hats & Heels (e/w).

The bumper is no egg & spoon race.

C’mon you Trojans! 😉
