Tom one for the notebook
Onefortheroadtom jumped for fun on his way to a successful debut over hurdles at Exeter on Tuesday.
The novice hurdle looked a strong one on paper and beforehand I would have settled for him finishing in the first five.
So it was really pleasing to see him travel well through the race before jumping to the front at the final flight and then keeping on to hold the strong late challenge of the favourite Lalor by a short head.
It was a fine effort by Onefortheroadtom given the slow early pace as he already needs further and won his only point-to-point in Ireland.
We will take things step by step and look to run him next in another similar race under a penalty.
