CRACKDELOUST back to winning form

Crackdeloust: won well in first-time blinkers

CRACKDELOUST bounced back to form with success in the 2m3½f Handicap Hurdle at Catterick yesterday. Brian Hughes partnered the six-year-old for owner Phil Martin and, settled in mid-division towards the outside, he travelled strongly and jumped well for much of the race. Gradually creeping closer from four out, he moved smoothly into the lead approaching the second last. Jumping the final flight well, he kept on to the line to win by two and a quarter lengths.

A good-looking gelding by Daramsar, he fell on his seasonal reappearance when making his chasing debut at Sedgefield back in November, and had run twice over hurdles since. He was up in trip yesterday and fitted with first time blinkers.
