Police stamps authority at ClonmelHeadlines
Call The Police

Call The Police capped an excellent day for Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh at Clonmel when taking the Derrygrath Chase.

Third to Bobs Worth in last season's RSA Chase, Call The Police (5-6) was too good for the opposition. Leading two out, he outpointed Magnanimity by three and a half lengths, with Forpadydeplasterer third.

Mullins, who saddled a four-timer, said: "He's improving and is in everything including the Grand National. I wouldn't mind bringing him back to two miles either as he's such a good jumper that he'd be able to perform at that shorter trip."

Inish Island forced his way into the Festival equation with a cosy success in the Surehaul Mercedes-Benz Novice Hurdle.

The seven-year-old was last seen running second to At Fishers Cross in a Cheltenham handicap and he went one better under a confident ride.

The 11-10 favourite brushed aside his only serious rival, Venture Capital, in the closing stages to score by two lengths and was cut to 14-1 from 25s with Paddy Power for the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle.

Mullins said: "He's improving all the time. He's already shown good form at Cheltenham and we'll have to consider the Albert Bartlett. We'll have a chat with the owners and see what they want to do."

Sarabad (7-4 joint-favourite) struck first for Mullins and Walsh with a 29-length romp in the Surehaul Race Day Maiden Hurdle, while Annie Power (1-3) followed up her jumps debut success for the partnership in the Kilsheelan Mares Hurdle.

"She was taking on more experienced mares today and did it well. I think she handles all types of ground and that's good experience for her jumping around at that speed. The last was the only mistake she made and she'll learn a lot from that," said the County Carlow handler.

"She's entered at Cheltenham but I think we'll probably keep her at home - there's a good mares race at Fairyhouse. We think quite a lot of her and she could be anything. She could also be a really good chasing mare in time."
