Three-timer for Gustave Mahler
The classy Gustave Mahler (7g Mahler-Kloetta, by Grand Lodge) notched his third win this summer when scoring at Newton Abbot on Tuesday.
The admirable Mahler gelding was partnered by champion jockey Richard Johnson when defying a penalty to take the 2m 2f novices’ hurdle.
Campaigned well by trainer Alastair Ralph, he also won novice hurdles at Worcester in May and Southwell the following month.
“He is a game sort and can win again,” commented the Racing Post after this latest success.
