Both Agricultural & Karingo took part in the VISIT MYTOTEPOOOL.COM NOVICES’ HANDICAP CHASE, a Class 5 race over 20f and 15 fences on a track that was Good.
This was Karingo’s debut in a Chase .
Agricultural was ridden by Adam Nicol and Karingo by Grant Cockburn.
In a race of basically 2 circuits of the Scone Course, the 10 runners remained in reasonable proximity to each other on the first circuit with Agricultural mid-pack and Karingo toward the rear. Early into the second circuit Karingo, whose jumping had not been good, was pulled up. Agricultural continued to run and jump well but as the pace quickened round the final bend, he was unable to go with the leaders and finished unplaced.
