Wild scenes in Exeter drama

Philip Hobbs and Micheal Nolan will never manage another victory as unlikely as that of Thomas Wild at Exeter.

Paddy Brennan and Nodebateaboutit were lengths clear jumping the last fence of the Bathwick Tyres Plymouth Handicap Chase and in reach of the line until success was sabotaged by a loose horse.

Ringa Bay had been running alone on the inside of the course but suddenly veered dramatically to his left in order to make his way towards a path leading back to the stables.

He cannoned into Nodebateaboutit, causing Brennan to lose all momentum, and Thomas Wild (13-2) passed by just before the post. Ringa Bay went to ground and caused some damage to a rail, but was soon back on his feet again.
