The Clonmel Oil Chase is a Grade 2 contest raced over a trip of 2m4f and takes place each November at the Irish Racecourse. It is always an important early season affair which takes place during mid-week at Clonmel and nearly always seems to attract some top class chasers. Past winners of the race include War Of Attrition and Sizing Europe who both tasted success at the Cheltenham Festival during their career's.
