We have a good team of juvenile hurdlers this season and Dovils Date staked an early claim for the Fred Winter at Cheltenham in March with an authoritative success on his National Hunt debut at Musselburgh yesterday under Richard Johnson.

A little careful over his hurdles in the early part of the race after overjumping the first flight, he really warmed to the task and put the race to bed quickly when asked entering the home straight.
We will give him an entry in the Grade 2 Triumph Hurdle Trial at Cheltenham on the 17th and hopefully he can be competitive despite the hike in grade!
