Grand Annual Chase 2020 Result

JOHNNY HENDERSON GRAND ANNUAL CHALLENGE CUP HANDICAP CHASE (Grade 3) (1)

Distance: 2m 62y (New)
Prize: £61,897 Age: 5yo+ Race Type: Chase Going: Gd/Sft

A fresher feel to this year's Grand Annual following a spell of older, exposed sorts holding sway, this likely to prove robust form for once, Gino Trail then Marracudja ensuring an end-to-end gallop and teeing things up for those ridden with a little more patience, 3 of the first 4 novices (all running to a level that suggests they'd have gone close in the Arkle) and the other in only his second season chasing, a veteran with 2 frame finishes in this race in the past leading home the remainder.

Non Runners: ADRRASTOS (IRE) , CAID DU LIN (FR) . Fences: 14.

Winning Owner: The Northern Four Racing Partnership

Time: 4m 8.5s
