DOUVAN - 2019 Winner
Eight time Grade One and dual Cheltenham Festival hero Douvan (11/8 into 4/5) returned off a 569 day break to win the 2019 Grade Two Clonmel Oil Chase in style.
He made a mistake at the seventh, but it was looking good for him once going to the front before the fifth last fence.
Upped to this extended two and a half mile trip, Paul Townend’s mount was untidy at the last but honours were well secured at that stage.
Paddy Power were quickly in with a 12/1 (from 33s) quote about Douvan for the 2020 Ryanair Chase, after his nine and a half-length demolition of Jett. Monalee finished seven and a half lengths back in third.
