Qualviro jumping the last at Ludlow

I was delighted to see Qualviro get off the mark at Ludlow yesterday, gamely seeing off two challengers after the final flight under a strong ride from Michael Byrne.

Qualviro had been in good form over fences prior to being hampered and pulling up in the Sussex National on his latest start, and the switch to hurdles will hopefully do his confidence some good before returning chasing later in the season.  I thought the 2m5f  trip on a sharp track would be a problem and he could well have more to offer off his new mark when upped in trip on a more galloping track for his owners Steve Clarke and Dom Wallis of the Double Trouble Partnership.
