Kazzene ran out a possibly fortunate winner of the William Hill Juvenile Hurdle at Kempton.

The 11-4 shot, trained by David Pipe and ridden by Tony McCoy, was under pressure when A Media Luz took a crashing fall at the second-last flight of hurdles.

Nicky Henderson's filly was travelling best of all when coming to grief, leaving Brampour and Kazzene in front.

Kazzene still had half a length to find with Brampour at the last but he jumped it well and surged clear for a one and a half length success, from Kuilsriver (33-1) who ran on well to snatch second.

Pipe told Racing Uk: "He'd been working nicely at home. He's a bit of a character but he's got an engine.

"AP (McCoy) gave him a great ride and the more you ask of him the more he'll find for you.

"It looks like the owners have got another nice one. We don't have many juveniles but he's certainly one of the better ones.

"He'll have an entry for the Triumph Hurdle and maybe also for the Supreme Novices'. He needs more experience and he'll run again before the Festival," he added.

Third home Brampour, sent off the 13-8 favourite, was keen in the early stages like the winner but had every chance in the final furlong.

Nicholls said of Brampour: "He jumped really well but they crawled for much of the way, which won't have helped and he'll come on for it.

"He was bought for the Triumph and I think we'll find a little novice at somewhere like Taunton in three weeks' time."

Finch Flyer and Jolly Roger ran well in fourth and fifth respectively.

Totesport go first show Kazzene 12-1 for the Triumph Hurdle at the Festival, with Brampour the same price. A Media Luz is 16-1 with the same firm.
