Peter The Mayo Man (Dylan Thomas) winning a novice chase at Doncaster

Exciting novice chase winner for Dylan Thomas

Peter The Mayo Man (7g Dylan Thomas-Mommkin, by Royal Academy) made a hugely impressive start to his chasing career at Doncaster on Friday.

A new recruit to Paul Nicholls and the Million In Mind Partnership this season, the Dylan Thomas gelding looks destined for a successful season novice chasing after beating the highly-regarded Stowaway Magic by six lengths.

Nick Scholfield was in the saddle and commented: "Peter The Mayo Man is very smart. He met some short and he met some long and that will stand him in good stead in a better class of race. Chasing is definitely going to be his game, his jumping was super."

Peter The Mayo Man was bred in Ireland by Richard Lewis and Hugh Lewis.
