Voix Du Reve made all to land the Grade Two Betway Craddockstown Novice Chase at Punchestown.

Five went to post for this two mile chase.

As the tapes went up, Voix Du Reve went on from Hardline and Cadmium.

That was the order with a circuit to race.

Voix Du Reve moved five lengths clear, but clouted the third fence. However, he maintained his momentum and advantage, racing clear of Hardline and Cadmiuum, with Well Tom and Killdorrery in arrears.

Five out, the final ditch, and Voix Du Reve still travelled well, with a five length advantage, with Cadmium moving second and then the improving Killdorrery and Hardline.

At the third last, it was still Voix Du Reve in front, with Hardline reclaiming second as Cadmium came under pressure. Further back, Well Tom parted company with his jockey.

Voix Du Reve took the second last in front, but came under pressure as Hardline tried to close. Cadmium was unable to make any further impression.

But Voix Du Reve took the last well and powered clear on the flat for an impressive victory over Hardline, with Cadmium a disappointing third.
