Ask Paddington (Ask) winning a bumper at Perth by 15 lengths

Paddington is 15-length winner for Ask

Ask Paddington (4g Ask-Dual Obsession, by Saddlers' Hall) looks an exciting hurdling prospect for Ask after storming home to a facile bumper win at Perth on Thursday.

Trained by Micky Hammond for Craig Buckingham, the four-year-old made all in the two-mile contest and powerd further and further ahead of his opposition to eventually prevail by 15 lengths.

The Racing Post commented that Ask Paddington “opened his account … without being asked a serious question, making all the running. He's out of a half-sister to a couple of winning jumpers, including the high-class chaser Trabolgan, and he can make his mark over hurdles".

Ask Paddington was bred in Ireland by Gleadhill House Stud.
