Galahad Quest wins at Cheltenham

Galahad Quest stayed on stoutly to register a first win in the JCB Triumph Trial Juvenile Hurdle at Cheltenham.

Unraced on the level, he had the misfortune to come up against leading Triumph fancy Allmankind on his debut and was beaten out of sight, but he did take a big step forward when finishing second to a decent Flat recruit last time out.

There were five still in with a chance as they swung into the straight, but the fancied Rowland Ward’s chances ended as he was squeezed up against the rail before dropping away.

Favourite Monte Cristo had set a pretty sedate pace throughout and was still in front, but he was swamped at the last by David Pipe’s Night Edition and Galahad Quest (6-1).

It was Nick Williams’ charge, under Harry Cobden, who stayed on best of all though to win by a length.
