Misterton back in the groove
It was good to see Misterton gain his third success of the season at Wincanton on Sunday.
With a bit of luck we might have had a treble on the day because African Tiger was poised to win when he fell at the last flight in the handicap hurdle and Sir Ivan was going best when he came down at Hereford.
Misterton won the two and a half mile novices' handicap hurdle despite running around in front and looking green with his ears pricked between the last two flights.
The only blemish from Misterton over hurdles this season came when Noel wisely pulled him up three out at Cheltenham after he felt him lose his action but thank goodness he was fine afterwards.
We will look to run him again in the next few weeks.
