Triolo D’Alene landed a big pot for connections in April, 2013, when the ready winner of the Grade 3 Crabbie’s Topham Chase over the famous Grand National fences at Aintree over 2m 5f.

He also Won the 2013 Hennessy Gold Cup over an extended 3m 2f by 2 3/4 lengths from Rocky Creek at Newbury, but disappointed when pulled-up in 2014 running of the Crabbie’s Grand National and was restricted to just two outings in the 2014/15 season.

Bounced back to form on seasonal reappearance with victory in a Listed chase over an extended 2m 4f at Kempton Park in January but only a distant fifth last time out behind Silviniaco Conti in the Grade 1 Ascot Chase.

Jump race record

Triolo D’Alene has some classy back form, and despite being pulled-up in the 2014 running of the Crabbie’s Grand National is not one to write off. Has won 33 per cent of his races, and needs good ground to be seen to best effect.
