RSA Chase 2020 Result

14:10 Wednesday 11 March 2020

RSA INSURANCE NOVICES' CHASE (Grade 1) (1)

Distance: 3m 80y (Old)
Prize: £98,472 Age: 5yo+ Race Type: Chase Going: Soft

A remarkable finish, Champ making up 8 lengths from the last to deny a pair that had gone nip and tuck for much of the way, the trio a long way clear of the rest, no sense that the placed horses were stopping or that the winner was flattered, just that it took a while for him to be galvanised to find his full stride; there were disappointments in the race, but the first 2 were Grade 1 winners as novices over hurdles and the first 3 deserve full credit for their efforts, the form looking at least up to an average running of the RSA.

All 10 ran. Fences: 19.

Winning Owner: Mr John P. McManus

Time: 6m 29.2s
