Robcour enjoy Grade 3 double Journey at Naas
Updated: Mar 13
Journey With Me completed a Grade 3 double at Naas this afternoon for owner Robcour when landing the Bar One Racing ‘Extra Places At Cheltenham’ Directors Plate Novice Chase.
The Mahler gelding, a useful sort over hurdles last season, won his beginners’ chase over this course and distance just before Christmas and was regaining the winning thread having run Impervious to half-a-length at Punchestown last month.
The pair pulled 25 lengths clear of Flanking Maneuver in third.
Stable representative Robbie Power said, “Good performance, it wasn’t ideal having to make his own running. He’s a bit lairy and didn’t jump as well as he can. I think he was doing too much looking around him.
“When the second horse came to him at the second last he picked up well and I think he’s a horse that will stay further.
