Days Hotel

A costly error at the final fence by Realt Dubh let in Days Hotel to land the paddypower.com Chase at Naas.

Paul Carberry brought the Noel Meade-trained Realt Dubh with what looked a well-timed run to challenge the long-time leader in the Grade Two event, but he met the last obstacle all wrong.

That left Andrew Lynch on Days Hotel (5-4 favourite), trained by Henry de Bromhead, to come home clear by six lengths. Realt Dubh was still second, ahead of the disappointing Call The Police.

De Bromhead said: "His jumping won it for him and he had to do it the hard way. He set a good gallop and jumped well all the way.

"I'm delighted for the owner (James Treacy) as he's been great since he came back from injury. That's two Grade Twos he's won now and he keeps improving.

"The Normans Grove at Fairyhouse (April 2) is probably the obvious one now, especially if he gets some ease in the ground.

"The Kinloch Brae at Thurles was too far on heavy ground, but I wouldn't mind stepping him up in trip again on better ground."

The Francis Flood-trained Miss Xian (10-1) put up a gutsy performance to see off all-comers in the three-mile Book Online At naasracecourse.com Handicap Hurdle.

Prominent all the way under Paul Townend, she was in front on the turn for home and stayed on stoutly in the testing conditions to beat Acapulco by two and a quarter lengths.

Francis Flood jnr said: "They didn't go a mad pace and she was able to keep her place. She may lack a gear, but he didn't have to rush her and she kept on really well. The three miles was certainly a help compared to the two and a half last time."
