Cross Country Chase 2020 Result

GLENFARCLAS CHASE (CROSS COUNTRY) (2)

Distance: 3m 6f 37y (XC)
Prize: £40,235 Age: 5yo+ Race Type: Chase Going: Heavy

Two notable new challengers for the hat-trick seeking Tiger Roll and, though former Gold Cup second Might Bite never got competitive, the other was threatening to spoil the party from 5 out, Easysland - who'd taken up the running at the twentieth - shifting up to a gear that the majority didn't possess at that stage, the front 2 in the market out in splendid isolation after the second last; Tiger Roll only briefly promised to get upsides, fading quite tamely on the run-in, a clear underperformance for all that the winner is an exceptional operator in this division; despite bypassing the Aintree fence the race took over 9 minutes to run for the first time in its history, indicative of very testing ground.
