Chakun Por Soi on his way to victory in his reappearance in Cork
By Mark Boylan
The scene in Pencestown may have been hazy and uncertain on Sunday, but Cork’s Chakun Por Soi made it clear that he is the most exciting two-mile chase in Ireland, where he landed in February with decisive success in the Kerry Group Healy Way Chase.
What already seemed like a straightforward task for Willie Mullins’ favorite, who trained with Bataway Champion Chase at the time of the announcement, got even better before the races started in a soft to hard place in place of Malow, with the withdrawal of Sitting Potts and Team-Mate due to bruises . and the Daily Tiger turned off as a result of the temperature.
The reduced ground saw last season’s Dublin Chase win 1-5 for his season’s reappearance in the 2nd tier company, giving b 8 to 156-rated stable teammate Cash Beck, and he was never required to move on. cutting-edge equipment against a trio of triggers.
In the early stages, he enthusiastically approached his fences and had to dance in front of the boards on several occasions, putting himself under Paul Towend himself.
The first runners Jingle and Cash Beck seemed to be under the control of performer owned by Susanna Ritchie before the third last when they tightened slightly, but Chakun Por Soi again easily insisted that he should take command as he approached the second final, top jump of the latter for good measure.

Paul Towend (left): “He just had a little hour. He made a good shot and I think he will show a lot about it.”
The same could not be said for Cash Beck, who fell hard on the last fence under Danny Mullins, knocking down Ingingle and leaving Darasso, who was never dangerous from behind, in second place as the only finish. Fortunately, everyone left seemingly unharmed.
“It was a great start for him,” Towend said after a 19-point triumph in Chakun Por Soi’s first start after missing out on Champion Chase in the morning due to a foot abscess.
“He was quite sleepy at the start of the race and got a good kick inside. He made the other two well beaten when they fell on the last one and had the right to win. Fortunately, he did it and it is good to get him back on track. “

He added: “Touch a tree, his jump is deadly – I do not want to make fun of him. He is very good. The other two should show their hands earlier with the way they race, there was no hiding place, he just had that hour on He made a good shot and I think he will take care of it a lot.
“He is an elegant individual and I was able to go straight where I wanted to go. A few good jumps put him to bed. I could not be happier overall. He showed great motorbike when he won Leopardstone last season and beat Min. “We can keep his crossed fingers in one piece and he may have some unfinished business.”
Chakun Por Soi may be only five years old since arriving from France more than four and a half years ago, but the star-studded star could see his champion Chase’s chances solidify with another top-level success at Leopardstone at Christmas, cut off price from 4-1 to 5-2 and 3-1 for the glory of Cheltenham.
“I was hoping he might win a little easier, but he needed to,” Mullins said. “I did enough with him to get the job done. “There remains a huge improvement and it will take a toll.”
He added: “I’m a creature of habit, so I would imagine going back to Leopardstone for Christmas with him now and drawing the same path to Champion Chase as last year.”
