A Toi Phil too good in Kinloch Brae Chase

Sun 21 Jan 2018

A Toi Phil stamped his class on the Horse & Jockey Hotel Kinloch Brae Chase at Thurles.

American Tom took the field along, with the remaining trio racing together for the first circuit, and Arctic Skipper was the first to crack.

American Tom made a mistake five out, allowing A Toi Phil and Woodland Opera to close the gap, and the leader was not fluent at the third-last either.

Woodland Opera began to toil but A Toi Phil was still travelling strongly and hit the front between the final two obstacles before coming nine and a half lengths clear of American Tom.

The 6-4 shot's victory completed a treble on the card for trainer Gordon Elliott and owners Gigginstown House Stud, and a double for jockey Jack Kennedy.

Elliott said: "In his own grade, he is brilliant and won't let you down and Jack gave him a great ride again today.

"It's been a good day."
