Ballymore Novices' Hurdle 2002 Result

14:00 Wednesday 13 March 2002

ROYAL & SUNALLIANCE NOVICES' HURDLE (Grade 1) (A)

Distance : 2m 5f
Prize : $52,200 Age : 4yo+ Race Type : Hurdle Going : Soft

A field containing any number of really promising types and there's no reason to think it wasn't a decent renewal of the race, though it would have been more informative had 3 horses, including the leader, not been taken out at the second last; the pace looked a good one and the race developed into a real war of attrition under conditions which turned out to be more testing than anticipated, with those who were close to the pace throughout deserving still extra credit.

All 27 ran.

Winning Owner: Mrs S.Nelson,Allan Stennett,Terry Warner
