Highlights from recent Clonmel Oil Chases
Kemboy - 2018 Winner
Kemboy picked up where he left off last season when claiming the 2018 Grade 2 Clonmel Oil Chase on his return to action.
Willie Mullins charge had progressed well during his novice campaign last season, culminating in a commanding victory in a hot handicap contest at Punchestown.
The Voix Du Nord gelding was sent off 11/8 favourite for his comeback and proved best in the two-and-a-half mile contest.
Paul Townend tracked last year's winner Alpha Des Obeaux (6/4) before sending his mount up to dispute before the second last.
There was nothing between the pair going to the last but a fine leap by Kemboy gave him the advantage and he went on to record a three-length victory for the Supreme Horse Racing Syndicate.
