Richard Johnson: All smiles after Captain Chris' brave win
Captain Chris got the better of Realt Dubh after an epic battle for the Ryanair Novices' Chase at Punchestown.
Paul Carberry looked to be travelling better than Richard Johnson on the eventual runner-up but crucially the winner produced more fluent leaps than his rival at the final two fences.
Realt Dubh still tried to challenge on the flat but Captain Chris, winner of the Irish Independent Arkle Trophy at Cheltenham, wasn't for passing and held on to win by a length-and-a-quarter.
"We are very pleased with his performance - chuffed to bits. We have always thought two miles was a bit short for him but he did win the Arkle.
"We have talked about going further but nevertheless he is effective over two miles.
"Ideally we would like to find a two-and-a-half-mile race somewhere to start him off next season.
"I haven't got anything obvious, but maybe the Amlin Chase at Ascot which is two mile three might be the place to go, or maybe the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter which is two and a quarter.
"I suppose we'd be half-thinking the King George but that's three miles and we don't really know if that is the thing to be doing yet."
"It was the end of the season and he needs his summer grass, and he'll get it now."
