Verdict

An unsatisfactory Triumph Hurdle trial won by David Pipe's KAZZENE. Whilst the performance of the winner was likeable enough, the race lost much of its lustre as a feasible trial with the combination of a slow early pace, a poor time and the fall of A Media Luz at the second-last flight of hurdles when still going well. To the winners' credit he was off the bridle turning for home but he responded well to pressure, a trait that his trainer alluded to in the post-race interview. He still had a length or so to find with Brampour between the second-last and final flight but he made up the ground well and after a fluent jump at the last he bounded clear in the closing stages. Bookmakers were taken with the result, entering him to the market for the Triumph Hurdle although his trainer also suggested he will have a Supreme Novices' entry. He wears cheekpieces, as he did in France, but seems a genuine character and if his jumping holds up on his next start, then he may then become a major Triumph contender. At the moment it's too early to say. Brampour ran well, although he was overhauled for second in the end by the running-on Kuilsriver. Alison Thorpe's charge was always prominent but he ran a great race, putting his experience in bumpers to good use in the closing stages. Finch Flyer ran on well in fourth, holding every chance at the second-last on the far side of the group, whilst previous winner Jolly Roger was back in fifth. He hadn't beaten too much at Huntingdon in November, for which he carried a penalty, and his proximity to the winner suggests this form is not the best seen this season. As to the mare A Media Luz, it is hard to be too dogmatic about her winning but it certainly looked likely. Like Kazzene and Brampour, she had been keen early, however her jumping in the early stages was much more fluent than her two main rivals. She was on the bridle when she jumped too enthusiastically at the second-last, and still remains very much of interest for any future assignment, regardless of class.
