Arkle Challenge Trophy 2004 Result

14:40 Tuesday 16 March 2004

IRISH INDEPENDENT ARKLE CHALLENGE TROPHY CHASE (Grade 1) (A)

Distance: 2m
Prize: £81,200 Age: 5yo+ Race Type: Chase Going: Good

By no means a vintage Arkle, the winner's performance a long way below the level achieved by Moscow Flyer and Azertyuiop in the 2 previous runnings, but it was certainly competitive and the size of the field meant it was always going to provide a thrilling spectacle; it was run at a good pace from the off and those who were bang there throughout can probably be considered a bit better than the result; the field as a whole looked well.

All 16 ran.
