Gallant Maple Mons Lands Down Royal Hunter Chase

Gallant Maple Mons Lands Down Royal Hunter Chase

Maple Mons proved her undoubted toughness when running out a comfortable winner of the Daily Mirror Hunter Chase at Down Royal on St. Patrick’s Day.

Ridden patiently throughout the early exchanges and allowing the front-running Theatre One and Howwouldsheno to race 15-lengths clear of the main grouping, David Christie’s chestnut mare steadily reduced the defecit along the back straight in company with her main market rival Quiet Account. 

Once dispensing of the two front runners earlier in the home straight, the two market principals soon eased clear and settled down to decide the outcome between them.

Declan Lavery aboard the favourite was the first to ask his mount to try and quicken, which she duly responded ensuring that Quiet Account came under pressure at the penultimate fence.

Soon gaining the upper hand, the nine-year-old Great Exhibition mare race clear to run out a seven-length winner over the Colin McBratney-trained Quiet Account.

Hasty Times rallied in the final quarter of a mile to take third at the expense of Howwouldsheno.

The victory was a second Hunter Chase success of the season for Maple Mons having won a Hunter Chase at Wexford in March.
