Son Of Mahler Obliges In Rated Novice Hurdle

A step up in trip saw Caesar Rock (6g Mahler - Supreme Von Pres, by Presenting) get off the mark in the Rated Novice Hurdle at Wexford on Friday.

Twice placed over hurdles earlier this season, Mouse Morris’s charge made all under Ricky Doyle and was asked to quicken from two out. Keeping on well under pressure, he scored by a length and a quarter.

“That was a bonus as he’s going chasing and jumps super,” Morris commented after the race.

Owned by Michael and John O’Flynn, Caesar Rock was bred by Ms Margaret Treacy and is a half-brother to high-class chaser Highland Lodge (Flemensfirth).
