Just Don't Ask (Ask) winning a maiden hurdle at Ayr

Tough Ask wins for Longsdon

Ex-pointer Just Don’t Ask (6g Ask-Lucys Mate, by Supreme Leader) ran out a 16-length maiden hurdle winner at Ayr on Sunday for trainer Charlie Longsdon.

Jockey Brian Hughes was in the saddle and feels the Ask six-year-old, who won a point-to-point in November 2016, has a bright future.

“Just Don't Ask likes soft ground and won as he liked, as he was entitled to. He'll stay further and will ultimately make a chaser,” said Hughes.

Just Don’t Ask was bred by Ann and Se Cahalan.
