Mallowney in sparkling show

first_img Press Association A hugely impressive scorer in the Dan Moore Memorial Chase at Fairyhouse last month, Tim Doyle’s stable star was the even-money favourite back in Grade Two company and did it again. The nine-year-old fenced beautifully throughout and having taken up the running from Twinlight early on the second circuit, he cruised into the home straight with plenty in the tank. Mallowney put up a thrilling performance to take the Paddy Power Your Local Betting Shop Chase at Naas in the hands of Davy Russell.center_img Moscow Mannon tried to throw down a challenge but suffered a fall at the final fence when looking beaten, allowing Mallowney to coast home 17 lengths clear of Rathlin, with Twinlight third. Doyle said: “I was hoping he’d do that and it was very similar to the way he won the Dan Moore. Davy thinks he’s getting more relaxed. “We’ll stick to our plan and he’ll probably go to Fairyhouse for the Normans Grove and Punchestown (Champion Chase) after that. “He’s relaxing earlier in his races and Davy seems to have the key to him. He’s four wins from four races around here, and that’s his first Grade Two win.” There was a sad postscript to the race as Moscow Mannon’s fall proved fatal. last_img read more
