Marsh Novices' Chase 2020 Result

13:30 Thursday 12 March 2020

MARSH NOVICES' CHASE (Golden Miller) (Grade 1) (1)

Distance : 2m 3f 168y (New)
Prize : £84,405 Age : 5yo+ Race Type : Chase Going : Soft

The first 3 might have taken their time in going over fences, the first 2 both older than any previous winner since the race's inception in 2011 and the third long since into the veteran stage, but that clearly hasn't prevented them making the grade as chasers - indeed Faugheen came into this with the joint-highest Timeform rating of any previous runner in the race's history; this was the second novice chase of the week dominated by Irish-trained runners, a prominent pitch an advantage as is so often the case in this.

All 12 ran. Fences: 16.

Winning Owner: Gigginstown House Stud

Time: 5m 7.5s
