Son Of Westerner Races Clear On Chase Debut
Mister Murchan (7g Westerner - So Supreme, by Supreme Leader) produced a perfect round of jumping when making an impressive chase debut at Fontwell on Sunday.
Successful between the flags and over hurdles, the Richard Rowe-trained bay dropped down to two miles and five furlongs on his first start over fences. Niall Houlihan rode him to track the leader and led at the penultimate fence, racing clear approaching the last. Keeping on well on the run-in, he scored by 12 lengths on the line.
Bred by Grange Stud, the son of Westerner is a half-brother to useful chaser Emcon.
