95/1 Clonmel chase brace for de Bromhead
Withallduerespect (7/1) completed a quick chase double for Henry de Bromhead in the Quirke uPVC Windows (Clonmel) Opportunity Handicap.
Charlie O'Dwyer was on board the daughter of Mahler and bided his time until letting her stride on down the hill on the approach to the straight. The seven-year-old, a winner over hurdles at Tramore last summer and having her first outing for seven months, jumped the last two fences really well and stayed on to account for Berliet Express by four and three quarter lengths. Pythion was another four lengths back in third.
Winning trainer Henry de Bromhead, successful with the Conor Brassil-ridden Cornerkova (11/1) in the previous contest, said: "Charlie was brilliant on her and I'm delighted for the lads (One In The Barrell Syndicate). She is a nice mare, has always jumped very well and we hoped she'd make a better chaser than hurdler so it is great to see her go out and do it.
"Chasing will be her game for the summer.
"Charlie has been coming down to us a lot and has ridden a good bit for us and Conor (Brassil) joined us full-time six weeks ago. I'm delighted for them and Derek (McGrath) has also ridden a good bit for us and today, and these races, are good opportunities."https://www.irishracing.com/news?prid=233956
