Monalee glee for Henry de Bromhead at Leopardstown

racing

Monalee put in a sparkling display of jumping to win the Flogas Novice Chase at Leopardstown.

Henry de Bromhead's 11-4 joint-favourite had fallen on his previous outing over Christmas but met nearly every fence on a perfect stride.

Given a bold ride by Noel Fehily, there were plenty in with chances approaching the last but not Sutton Place, who made a bad mistake down the back straight and was pulled up.

Monalee was almost joined at the final obstacle by Invitation Only, but Monalee's proven stamina came to the fore and he eventually ran out a determined three-quarter-length winner.

Al Boum Photo made late gains to claim second ahead of Invitation Only.
