Balbriggan lands Troytown at Navan
23 Nov 2014 16:04
Balbriggan put up an admirable front-running performance to land a gamble in the highly-competitive Ladbrokes Troytown Handicap Chase at Navan.
-
Available at 14-1 in places this morning, the Gordon Elliott-trained grey was sent off the 4-1 favourite and barely gave his legion of supporters an anxious moment en route to the €60,000 first prize.
-
Ridden with supreme confidence by 3lb claimer Kevin Sexton, Balbriggan saw off all-comers as he bounded to victory by a length and three-quarters from Omega Star.
-
Groody Hill, winner of this race in 2011, stayed on strongly for third with Back Off Mate fourth.
-
"It was easy enough to fancy him off a light weight," said Sexton, last season's champion Irish conditional rider..
-
"He was loving it all in front. His ears were pricked and he was winging his fences.
-
"He loves galloping and he handles soft ground."
