Smith satisfied with Ronald Pump displayPosted on Tuesday 3rd December 2019 @ 14.44

Trainer Matthew Smith admits he was happy with the way Ronald Pump recovered from an early mistake on Sunday.

The six-year-old was racing in the Baroneracing.com Drinmore Novice Chase at Fairyhouse and mis-jumped the fourth-last to put himself out of contention.

However, he rallied on from there to try and finish second to Fakir D'oudairies, who blitzed the field by 22 lengths.

With Samcro falling at the penultimate hurdle, the much-improved gelding took the runner-up spot.

Smith said: "I suppose after the mistake he made he did well to get back into it at all.

"I thought he was travelling well just on their tails when he made that mistake. Obviously, it was impossible to know what would have happened.

"He just didn't jump as well as he did in his beginners' chase for some reason.

"The winner looked fairly impressive - and Samcro was travelling well - so who knows how it would have panned out. They are two very good horses."
