Go Robbie Go and that Troytown Win

The Troytown Chase is one of the national hunt years iconic early season races run at Navan in Co Meath. Having been won by some nice horses over the years including Notre Pere, Cane Brake and Cloudy Bays in recent times it retains its appeal to trainer, jockey and owner.

This years renewal sponsored by Ladbrokes saw 20 horses face the starter with Cootamundra the only horse entered never having won a steeplechase nor point to point. This of course belies his ability and his previous form which had seen him placed in a number of Black Type chases since winning twice over hurdles.

Trained in Blackwater Co Wexford by John Berry a former accomplished amateur jockey this horse is very much the star of the yard at present.
