Son Of Gleneagles Rises To Challenge On Return
The progressive Kettle Hill (4g Gleneagles - Sentaril, by Danehill Dancer) made easy work of his winner’s penalty when taking the Bombardier Novice Stakes at Wolverhampton on Monday evening.
Fifth on debut and successful next time out in July, Ray and Gretchen Jackson’s homebred was well-supported on return and was given a confident ride by Cieren Fallon. Shaken up to lead approaching the final furlong, William Haggas’s charge ran on well to score by three lengths from Hundred Isles (Fastnet Rock).
There may be more to come from Kettle Hill, as he is out of a half-sister to Enticing, who won a Group 3 at four, while her daughter One Master (Fastnet Rock) won the Group 1 Prix de la Foret as a four, five and six-year-old.
