Sizing Rome bids for consecutive success in Hunter Chase

Sizing Rome bids for consecutive success in Hunter Chase

10 horses have been declared for the King & Boyd Solicitors hunter chase at Downpatrick on Friday.

2017’s renewal was an eventful contest where by eight of the 11 runners came down on the turn before the first fence.

Sizing Rome (pictured) was the recent winner of the Peggy Hagan Memorial Hunters Chase at Down Royal for the Jim Dreaper yard which was his first success since winning his five-year-old geldings’ maiden at Kirkistown in March 2017 and was ridden by Lisa O’Neill on that occasion who has been booked again.

Dreaper enjoyed success in this race in 2015 when El Grande landed proceedings.

The six-year-olds runner up at Down Royal, Eddies Miracle, is also amongst declarations for the David Christie team.

The six-time winning pointer registered his first win under rules when he scored in the Daily Mirror hunter chase at Down Royal on the 19th March and then travelled to Aintree where he was one of three Irish runners to take part in the Foxhunters and unseated his rider at the ninth fence.

The Gerard Kelleher-trained Macs Legend was a comfortable winner of the Tramore Hunter chase having ran a creditable race at Cork in a hunter chase where he finished only one length runner-up to Oscar Contender.

The 10-year-old was most recently seen at Tipperary last Thursday in the hunter chase where he finished sixth to Maybeywhoknowsmaybey.

Clondaw Frisby was on the runners to slip up in last year’s race and will line-up again in this year’s renewal for the Jerry Cosgrave yard. The nine-year-old finished runner-up to Eddies Miracle at Down Royal in March and will be the mount of Mark O’Hare.

Ajijic from the Michael Winters yard ran a solid race at Tipperary to finish 13 lengths in third on what was his first start in hunter chase company.
