PADDY POWER PLATE HANDICAP CHASE (Grade 3) (1)

Distance: 2m 4f 127y (New)
Prize: £46,422 Age: 5yo+ Race Type: Chase Going: Gd/Sft

The only 3 horses to start at shorter than 12/1 were the 3 of the 5 Irish raiders representing top handicap form from the previous month's Dublin Racing Festival, hard to overstate quite how big a factor the establishment of that particular meeting has been on the recent Irish domination of this one, The Shunter becoming the fourth Irish-trained winner in 6 years of a race that had long been the preserve of home-trained runners; similar to the hurdling equivalent - the Coral Cup - the day before, the race was heavily influenced by a lack of pace, stemming in no small part from a series of attempted starts, the winner seen to much better effect on that score than the runner-up, the 2 of them clearly a long way ahead of their respective marks.
