Min Wins the Ryanair Chase

Min has won the 14:50 Ryanair Chase beating Saint Calvados on the line.

Paul Townend got his first win of the day after his third place on Faugheen earlier in 13:30 race. Speaking to ITV Sport moments after the race he said “It is very important to win here regardless of who you’re riding for”.

A Plus Tard went off as 7/4 favourite but could only manage third for Jockey Rachel Blackmore.

Frodon took the early lead but wasn’t another fairy-tale win for Bryony Frost as Frodon came home in fourth place unable to defend last year’s crown.

Riders Onthe Storm was hoping for a 4 successive win since joining Nigel Twiston-Davies yard from Tom Taaffe’s yard however sadly it wasn’t meant to be today as he fell at the third last.
