Trainer Seamus Neville believes that Ask Nile (5g Ask-Spirit Of The Nile, by Generous) could have a bright future over fences after the son of Ask captured a maiden hurdle at Clonmel on Thursday.
The five-year-old, also a winning point-to-pointer, battled through the testing conditions to score by two and a half lengths under Brian Hayes.”
“I thought the ground would have caught him out a bit but he travelled well,” said Neville. “He’ll probably go for a winners-of-one and stay hurdling this season. Chasing ultimately is what we will be aiming at.”
