Boylesports Tied Cottage Chase (Grade 2) 2m, 5yo+
JOB done. Probably the best horse in training did what he always does as Douvan made nearly every yard of the running, jumped perfectly at every fence and then ran the finish out of his rivals without coming off the bridle to win.
The 1-14 favourite, Douvan did not need to do anything out of the ordinary to win, and he will head to the Cheltenham Festival next month with the expectation of all that he will add the Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase to his wins in the Racing Post Arkle and Supreme Novices’ Hurdle from previous meetings.
More to follow. . .
