Barbury trained Full Trottle takes Cheltenham Hunters' Chase

Laura Thomas with Full TrottleLaura Thomas with Full TrottleEight year-old Full Trottle - trained at Barbury by Laura Thomas - ran well to take the GX Landrover Open Hunter's Chase at Friday's evening meeting at Cheltenham (May 5.)

He was ridden by Mr Jonathan Bailey who has partnered him this season - mainly in point-to-points - to win six races including an Open Hunters' Chase at Ludlow on April 3.

The prestigious two-and-a-half mile Cheltenham chase had attracted a field of fourteen - but seven were pulled up during the race.

Irish bred Full Trottle - a somewhat tricky character - had been taken down to the start early.  Jonathan Bailey found a midfield place for him in the early stages of the race. They took the lead at the thirteenth fence and held on well to win by four lengths from Good Egg - trained and ridden by Miss Sarah Rippon.

Full Trottle is owned by Laura Thomas' father - Norman Thomas.
