Crievehill wins convincingly at Sandown

12th March, 2018

There were scenes of great excitement at Sandown on Saturday, when Crievehill stormed home to take the final race on the card, The Commission Free Racing At Matchbook Handicap Chase (Challenger Middle Distance Chase Qualifier) by twenty lengths.  Travelling well throughout the contest, Crievehill's jumping was foot perfect with the exception of the second last fence at which Sam Twiston-Davies asked for a long one but instead Crievehill got in a bit tight, however his momentum was such that he still powered away from his rivals and was well in the lead by the time they reached the last.  He has now qualified for the Middle Distance Series Final at Haydock on 31st March, and this may well be a realistic target for his next outing.
