LORNA BROOKE WINS IN FAIRYHOUSE
Many congratulations to Lorna Brooke, the sole lady amateur from GB riding in the inaugural running of the Today FM Ladies Handicap Chase victorious with 25/1 outsider MOONLONE LANE.
Leading riders Katie Walsh and Nina Carberry were the star names in the 12 runner field which also included GB conditional Lizzie Kelly. It was the British pair who shared the lead before the home turn but Lizzie Kelly’s mount RIGHTVILLE BOY began to falter when they turned into the straight. Meanwhile the other joint-favourite ON THE SHANNON was being patiently ridden by Katie Walsh but blundered at the final fence. That allowed MOONLONE LANE to go on and score by 3/4 of a length with RIGHTVILLE BOY a further 14 lengths back in third.
Well done Lorna!
