Troytown glory for Riverside City and Jack Kennedy

first_img The Cullentra handler, successful in last year’s renewal with Balbriggan, declared four horses for the prestigious handicap, but his team was halved after Azorian and Bonisland were taken out. Empire Of Dirt and Kylecrue disputed the lead throughout and remained to the fore at the top of the home straight. Empire Of Dirt was still in with every chance when crashing out three fences from the finish. Six horses were in contention after jumping the next, after which in-form mare Ballychorus started to assert. However, she was being reeled in by the Elliott duo when she came to grief at the last.

Kylecrue was 14 lengths back in third. Kennedy, completing the middle leg of a treble after also scoring on Elliott’s Baroque Style and Prince Of Scars, said: “It’s my first winner over fences and to get it in such a big handicap is lovely. “I think that was my fifth or sixth ride over fences and I’m very grateful to Gordon and Mr (JP) McManus (owner) for giving me the opportunity. “I thought he’d go well with such a light weight and he’d come on for the run in Cork the last day. Riverside City led home stable companion Georges Conn to give trainer Gordon Elliott a one-two in a dramatic Ladbrokes Troytown Chase at Navan. Press Association “That’s six winners for the week, I’m delighted. I couldn’t be asking for anything better.” Elliott said: “It’s great to win it again, it’s my local track and to have the first and second is brilliant. “Jack is a very good rider. He’s very cool and nothing panics him. “Georges Conn hasn’t won a chase yet, but he could be a horse for a race like the four-miler (National Hunt Chase) in Cheltenham.” last_img read more
