Arkle Challenge Trophy 2018 Result

14:10 Tuesday 13 March 2018

RACING POST ARKLE CHALLENGE TROPHY NOVICES' CHASE (Grade 1) (1)

Distance: 1m 7f 199y (Old)
Prize: £99,662 Age: 5yo+ Race Type: Chase Going: Soft

A 5-runner Arkle, the smallest field in the history of the race, but the quality was good with the 3 highest-rated novice chasers of the season to now over any trip taking each other on and Footpad ran out a most impressive winner, putting up a top-class performance not dissimilar to that the likes of Un de Sceaux, Douvan and Altior did in winning the event in recent years; it must be said that an overly-strong pace set things up perfectly for such a wide-margin success and Walsh excelled on Footpad, sitting well off the duelling pair up ahead, biding his time, whilst Davy Russell and Aidan Coleman can be criticized for tearing off on Petit Mouchoir and Saint Calvados, the former doing well not to crack sooner.

All 5 ran. Fences: 13.

Winning Owner: Mr Simon Munir/Mr Isaac Souede

Time: 4m 2.3s
