Fingal drama at ExeterHeadlines
Fingal Bay

Jockey Richard Johnson had a fortunate escape as Fingal Bay dramatically ran out in the Harry Dutfield Memorial Novices' Chase at Exeter.

The 1-12 favourite had been jumping to the left virtually all the way through the three-runner heat and he did so again at the third-last fence, failing to take off before smashing into the wing of the fence.

Johnson was soon on his feet, as was Fingal Bay, and the pair continued to the finish on foot as Chartreux lifted the prize.

Johnson had been battling throughout with Fingal Bay, surviving a couple of hairy leaps early on before virtually pulling up to allow rank outsider Ashbourne Folly through to give him a lead.

Fingal Bay momentarily got his jumping back together when in behind, but he was travelling far too strongly and soon went to the front again in company with Chartreux.

Johnson switched his mount to the far rail and was still in front when he smashed through the rail, allowing the Tom George-trained Chartreux (15-2) to stroll home for a wide-margin success. (reopens)

The track later confirmed both Fingal Bay and Johnson were unhurt.

Arbor Supreme was a surprise 16-1 winner of the Axminster Carpets Devon Marathon Handicap Chase.

Formerly trained by Willie Mullins and now with Jonjo O'Neill, the 10-year-old has run in three Grand Nationals in the past, most recently unseating his rider in this year's renewal.

He demonstrated plenty of stamina to triumph in the hands of Maurice Linehan here, jumping the last in front before staying on dourly to win by three and a half lengths from Desperate Dex, the 5-1 joint-favourite.
