Sous books Cheltenham ticketHeadlines
Willie Mullins

Willie Mullins nominated the Supreme Novices' Hurdle as the target for Pique Sous after the grey enjoyed the perfect return to action with a bloodless victory in the Bookings At Dundalkstadium.com Maiden under the all-weather track's floodlights.

Having his first start since October in the two-mile event on the Polytrack, the six-year-old, who finished third in last year's Champion Bumper at Prestbury Park, was partnered by Paul Townend and went off the 4-7 favourite.

Soon in a handy position from his wide draw, he never came off the bridle and Townend afforded himself a glance round as he eased to the front two furlongs out. It was a stroll from there as he came home four and a half lengths clear of Raise The Beat.

Mullins said "I'm delighted with the way he handled the surface - he hadn't been on it before, but I didn't want to run him on heavy ground. Whether he comes back here again or goes straight over to Cheltenham I don't know yet, but we'll see how he comes out of this.

"That win has booked his ticket for the Supreme Novices' Hurdle, but I don't think he'll run over jumps before then - he's a spring horse. When I saw this race come up I thought it would be a good opportunity for him."

Pique Sous, who is owned by the Supreme Horse Racing Club, was recording his fifth success in nine outings, having landed three bumpers and on his last run, a maiden hurdle at Thurles.

Stan James cut him to 20-1 from 25-1 for the Supreme Novices' Hurdle.
