www.crottly.co.uk Maiden Chase

Tuesday 14th May 2002 saw the running of the www.crottly.co.uk Maiden Chase @ Hereford.

14 went to post including runners from the leading stables of Ferdy Murphy, Henrietta Knight, Nigel Twiston-Davies, Alan King, Brendan Powell amongst others.

My preview of the race told you that the race could be limited to six and in fact two of the six were withdrawn leaving four to concentrate on. These were Andaleer, Lucky Time, Hi Rudolf and Supreme Storm.

In the race itself, Andaleer and Supreme Storm contested the lead until three out when Hi Rudolf and Lucky Time went past Supreme Storm and set off chasing Andaleer.

After the second last, Lucky Time went past Andaleer with Hi Rudolf just behind.

Although Lucky Time was not foot perfect at the last and idled on the run in, he held on to win from Andaleer, with Hi Rudolf third and Supreme Storm fourth with the remaining 10 runners unsighted.
