  • Snowden’s Ga Law had roared back to form to land the Paddy Power Handicap
  • But then Datsalrightgino took a tumble on first circuit of the Grade Two chase
  • Race was won by Capodanno for jockey Paul Townend and trainer Willie Mullins

Trainer Jamie Snowden was left devastated last night after he lost his stable star Datsalrightgino in the Cotswold Chase.

It had looked to be a day of celebration for Snowden after Ga Law, another standard bearer for his Lambourn yard, roared back to form to land the Paddy Power Handicap. Snowden was exultant as he welcomed him into the winner’s enclosure.

But 40 minutes later, he experienced the worst possible outcome when Datsalrightgino — winner of the historic Coral Gold Cup at Newbury last month — took a tumble on the first circuit of the Grade Two chase, for which he had been quietly fancied, and suffered irreparable leg damage.

The race was won by Capodanno for jockey Paul Townend and trainer Willie Mullins, the chestnut streaking clear in the final furlong.

The Cotswold Chase is recognised as a Cheltenham Gold Cup trial but Capodanno does not have an entry in that race.
