Dunlop out of luck at FakenhamHeadlines
Ed Dunlop

The Tiger, Ed Dunlop's first ever runner over jumps, could only manage fourth as Ubaldo Des Menhies ran away with the Mirror Punters Club Maiden Hurdle at Fakenham.

In a race that attracted plenty of attention with former smart Flat horse Chabal having his first run for 879 days, it was the Oliver Sherwood-trained Ubaldo Des Menhies who took the two-mile event by the scruff of the neck from some way out.

One-time Sandown Classic Trial winner Chabal, now with John Ferguson, was eventually pulled up, while fellow 2-1 joint-favourite The Tiger, who is part-owned by Dunlop, was caught close home for what would have been a distant second.

The 15-2 winner was having his third start for Sherwood and could not have been more impressive, going further and further clear in the hands of Wayne Hutchinson.

Hutchinson told At The Races: "I bounced him out and used his experience against these former Flat horses, he jumped from hurdle to hurdle and galloped them into the ground.

"He's progressive and on today's evidence you'd say he'd win under a penalty and jump a fence in time. He made light work of the ground."
