Bordoni impresses at RasenHeadlines
Bordoni

John Ferguson's Bordoni delivered the stand-out performance at Market Rasen when cantering nine lengths clear in the Worthingtons Juvenile Maiden Hurdle.

Second on his first outing since leaving Mark Johnston on the Flat, Bordoni then ran out when in the lead at Ludlow, but jockey Denis O'Regan was not ruling out a fair showing at one of the spring festival meetings after the 1-2 favourite flew straight and true over his obstacles to win.

"It was fierce unfortunate that day, but he came out of the race OK and came through this with flying colours. I was delighted with him," said O'Regan, who was asked if his mount might be a prospect for the Fred Winter at Cheltenham.

He added: "Without going overboard, you'd have to say he'd have a squeak in a race like that. Maybe Aintree might suit him better, but we'll see. His best form for Mark Johnston was on quick ground and I'm convinced he'll do better on top of the ground. He just could be a really nice prospect on better ground."

Richard Johnson had been due to ride at abandoned Sedgefield but it was worth him re-routing to Lincolnshire as he pushed Gallox Bridge out for a ready victory in the Magners Golden Draught Novices' Chase.

Tim Vaughan's 7-4 favourite, who ultimately scored by 14 lengths, had not tried fences before but set a good standard on his hurdling form.

The EBF 'National Hunt' Novices' Hurdle looked quite a strong affair and it boiled down to a cracking finish between the 9-4 joint-favourites as Lucy Wadham's Le Reve eventually wore down the leader Up To Something.

Newmarket-based Wadham has lofty aspirations for this giant gelding told Racing UK: "He is 17 hands and two, he's very leggy and we were worried it would be sharp enough round here, but the softer ground has helped him. I would think he will run in the final of this race at Sandown now.

"He's a half-brother to Join Together, who I'm hoping will win the Grand National, and hopefully that's where we'll be in another three years."

A snowstorm had appeared by the time of the Corona Extra Novices' Handicap Hurdle, but the weather and a 10lb rise in the weights could not thwart the in-form Henry Daly and his representative Winds And Waves (4-1).
