PUT The Kettle On produced a brave front-running performance to see off her three rivals for a surprise win in the Grade 2 Racing Post #responsiblegambling Arkle Trophy Trial Novices’ Chase.
The Henry de Bromhead-trained mare had run six times since May, including three wins over fences, and she made full use of that experience compared to the opposition.
They couldn't catch her! ??— Racing TV (@RacingTV) November 17, 2019
Outsider-of-four Put The Kettle On wins at 6-1 under @AidanColeman for @HenrydeBromhead
Soon in front after a big jump at the first, once she got into a rhythm, the rest could never quite get on terms.#TheNovemberMeeting @CheltenhamRaces pic.twitter.com/owi8nuF0wo
Aidan Coleman dictated affairs from the start, and although Put The Kettle On looked a sitting duck when the other three runners closed, her jumping proved decisive.
Getaway Trump was a big danger until a mistake two out set him back in his tracks, while Put The Kettle On (6/1) maintained the gallop to score by two and a half lengths from Al Dancer, the 7/4 favourite.
