16th July – Stratford

Dear Sire stayed on well to win the 2m½f “National Hunt” Novices’ Hurdle by 6 lengths under Lorcan Murtagh (7) for owners Green Day Racing.

Jumped right, made virtually all, jumped right and dived 4th, asserted between last 2 and in command when hung left before last, blundered badly last, stayed on, ridden out (op 2/1)
