Racing: Treacy at the double at Navan
Sunday 01 November 1998
The 4-1 outsider of four for the Fortria Handicap Chase, Delphi Lodge made the weight concession from his three more experienced rivals count. Pulled up at Gowran Park behind Dorans Pride, Delphi Lodge showed a good turn of speed to foil the well-backed Papillon in a race in which Merry Gale faded and Jeffell was pulled up at the end of the back straight.
While Delphi Lodge came late, Treacy employed different tactics as the 2-1 favourite Siberian Gale coasted to his initial win over the larger obstacles in the second division of the Brookfield Beginners Chase. Trained by the former champion Paddy Mullins for his son George, Siberian Gale overcame a mistake two out to beat Total Success, whose rider Ruby Walsh had earlier taken the Liz Mullen Hurdle on Commanche Court.
Trained by the winning rider's father Ted, Commanche Court started 6- 1 to foil a gamble on the favourite Nomadic. Puget Blue, carrying the Boss Doyle colours of Mrs Anne Daly, also impressed in the first division of the Brookfield Beginners Chase.
