Clonmel Oil Chase
The Clonmel Oil Chase is a Grade 2 National Hunt chase in Ireland which is open to horses aged five years or older. It is run at Clonmel over a distance of about 2 miles and 4 furlongs (4,023 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in November.
The event is named after its sponsor, the Clonmel Oil Company. It was formerly known as the Morris Oil Chase, and for a period it was contested over 3 miles in December. It was cut by half a mile in 1994, and at the same time it was moved to November. The race was given Grade 3 status in 1995, and it was promoted to Grade 2 level the following year. It was first run under its present title in 2003.
