The Betchworth Kid on his way to victory.

The Betchworth Kid on his way to victory.

The Betchworth Kid was another to make a successful switch between codes as the former Michael Bell inmate got off the mark for Alan King as the 4-6 favourite in the Ladbrokes Bamiyan Novices' Hurdle at Plumpton.

Owned by a syndicate which includes former Daily Mail racing correspondent Colin MacKenzie, the four-year-old had some useful form to his name with wins in such as Doncaster's Mallard Handicap.

And he could yet take high rank among this season's crop of jumping recruits after Robert 'Choc' Thornton guided him to a cosy victory.

King said: "The ground wasn't ideal but he has handled it and Choc said he will be better in a big field.

"He has been very straightforward since joining me and has enjoyed his jumping all of the way.

"We will see how it goes but if they are fit and well then him and Manyriverstocross will have entries in everything."

Sky Bet left the winner at 20/1 for the Ballymore Properties Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham.
