8-length novices' hurdle win for Dylan Thomas mare
Drops Of Jupitor (5m Dylan Thomas-Fancy Intense, by Peintre Celebre) showed off her talent at Exeter on Thursday when running out an impressive novices’ hurdle winner. Noel Fehily was aboard the Dylan Thomas mare and was always travelling well in the extended 2m 2f event, hitting the front two from home and storming clear to win by eight lengths. The Racing Post commented: “DROPS OF JUPITOR, backed in from 12-1 during the morning, readily reversed form with Waiheke having tanked through the race in rear, and the fact she still found off the bridle displayed how much ability she must possess. She has a nice enough pedigree being related to plenty of Flat winners, so can develop into a fair performer, especially when able to follow a decent gallop.” Drops Of Jupitor, bred by Brian Dolan, was bought for £52,000 by her trainer Anthony Honeyball after winning a bumper in January.
