CrMecguXYAAXxo_Having run well on the flat on his latest outing, Dovils Date returned to hurdles at Southwell yesterday and produced one of the best performances of his career to win the class 3 handicap hurdle in great style!

Ridden prominently by our promising conditional jockey George Blackwell, the pair took up the running after the third last and pulled clear from the home bend to win by 10 lengths.

It was a fine performance, and our second class 3 handicap success of the summer at Southwell, following Dubh Eile’s win there last month.  Hopefully the handicapper will give him a chance and he can make a bold bid to follow up next time. Well don to his owners in the Itsfuninit syndicate!
