Kashmir heading for summitHeadlines
Kashmir Peak (left) makes a winning challenge

Kashmir Peak confirmed himself another smart prospect for the Malton yard of John Quinn with victory in the BetVictor.com Summit Juvenile Hurdle at Doncaster.

The Nicky Henderson-trained Vasco Du Ronceray (4-6 favourite) edged to the front three out moving strongly, but Kashmir Peak was virtually upsides two from home.

Dougie Costello's mount (7-1) quickened smartly to the last and stayed on strongly down the run-in to come home ahead of Sametegal.

The Quinn team know what they are doing with youngsters over timber, landing the Triumph Hurdle last season with Countrywide Flame.

The trainer said: "We won this race last year with a very likeable horse (Royal Bonsai). This lad is better, but this race on paper looked very strong.

"He's a likeable horse with a great attitude. He'll be aimed at the Triumph. We'll give him one more run or maybe two and go there. It's three months away.

"Ger (Lyons) trained him on the Flat (in Ireland) and said there was plenty there. He really liked him."

Rocky Creek (4-6 favourite) staked a claim for the RSA Chase with a smooth display to get off the mark over fences in the Healthwatch Doncaster Novices' Chase.

The Paul Nicholls-trained gelding beat Molotov by four lengths under Daryl Jacob to earn a quote of 14-1 from 20s with Stan James for Cheltenham.

"Hopefully he will turn into a Festival horse in March. Between now and then he's got time to have two more runs," said Nicholls' pupil assistant Tom Jonason.
