Bright Future Ahead Of Son Of Westerner
Impressive point-to-point winner Choosethenews (5g Westerner - Leading Article, by Definite Article) justified strong market support to make a winning rules debut in Thursday’s Novices’ Hurdle at Ayr.
The son of Westerner drew 25 lengths clear on his sole start for Jack Teal and was sent off second favourite on his first start for Mark Walford. Making all under Jamie Hamilton, the bay jumped well throughout the two mile and five furlong contest and was ridden approaching the second last. Clear before the next, he kept on strongly on the run-in to score by six lengths, as previous hurdle winners finished second and third.
The exciting prospect was bred by J Kinsella.
