Glorious Finale Review

By 23rd September 2016

MOON RACER and Ballyandy produced a grandstand finish at Perth on Thursday as the last two winners of Cheltenham's Champion Bumper made their debuts over hurdles.

Having led at the half-way stage, it was 5/6 favourite Moon Race and Tom Scudamore that came out on top by three-quarters of a length in the Racing Post Readers Award Novices' Hurdle.

Winning trainer David Pipe said: "He will get better with age and there is a nice bit of improvement to come. He is a fragile horse so it was important to get him out and make an early start to the season - it was nice that the rain came in time.

"We might look at something at Cheltenham later this autumn now. The Supreme Novices' Hurdle in March remains the plan and, who knows, maybe this pair could be first and second again although perhaps Willie Mullins will have something to say about that!"

Nigel Twiston-Davies added of Ballyandy: "Both he and Moon Racer are very, very good horses and my horse has a fair bit of improvement in him."

Just over an hour later, Twiston-Davies introduced a nice prospect over fences when Flying Angel coasted home under son Sam in the Timothy Hardie Jewellers Novices' Chase.

"I'm hoping he could develop into one of the top novices this season," the winning trainer said. "We've sent the likes of Bindaree, Double Ross and Fundamentalist here as it a good place to start off these young horses. Flying Angel might go again at Cheltenham next month and I wouldn't be scared to come back to two miles with him as he's got so much pace."
