King in seventh heavenHeadlines
Robert Thornton on Seventh Sign (far side) winning narrowly at Newbury

Seventh Sign made a pleasing debut for Alan King in the Betfred Mobile Lotto Juvenile Hurdle as Newbury managed to beat the frost.

The infield remained white, but thankfully the ground covers revealed a strip of green as the 7-4 favourite had his first taste of jumping after a successful spell in staying handicaps for Tommy Carmody in Ireland.

Seventh Sign looked to have the event in the bag despite some slightly laboured efforts over the flights in the home straight, but a belated challenge from equally promising newcomer Veauce De Sivola saw him finish just a nose adrift.

King said: "We gelded him in December and it has been the making of him. He was only just ready, but I wanted to get him out with the weather that's about at the moment.

"He should be a bit sharper for the experience."
