CHUNKY EXILE ran out a most impressive of Monday night's eight-race at Youghal track, clocking a top class 28.97.
Owned by Andrew Lynch, Cappoquinn, the 7-4 winner didn't produce his usual flying start but he showed electric early gears to slip around in front. It looked a red hot A0-A1 on paper but the winner turned it into a one-dog event. Striding clear down the back straight, the 7-4 shot put on another fantastic display. Cunningar Spice caught the eye in second, four lengths back.

Galloping strongly down the back straight, the 7-4 second choice of the punters was in front at the third corner. Dower Dubh was trying hard throughout but the winner had a length and a half to spare, in 29.35.
HENNING OLESEN DOUBLE
The kennel of Henning Olesen, Tipperary, recorded a brilliant double.
