Pertemps Final 2020 Result

14:10 Thursday 12 March 2020


Distance: 2m 7f 213y (New)
Prize: £56,270 Age: 5yo+ Race Type: Hurdle Going: Soft

The wealth of weather-related abandonments during the season had meant a reduction in qualifiers yet it was still a full field as ever as the vast majority of those entered took their chance, a pair who'd gained their place by closing eye-catchingly into the first 6 of their respective qualifiers proving some way ahead of their mark by fighting out a close finish, 2 more Irish raiders among the quintet who came clear as only Third Wind of the British-trained runners got involved in that group, the prize heading back to Ireland for the fifth year in succession; Kansas City Chief didn't have to work hard to maintain his lead after getting the better of an early dash to the front, ensuring it wasn't the stamina test that might normally be expected from a demanding 3m on soft ground, the likely picture clearing up only as the principals dashed towards the last.
