A wide margin 2m4f point to point winner that was picked up by Lucinda Russell, Ahoy Senor made his rules debut in a bumper up at Ayr in mid January.
The six year old ran a creditable second and stayed on well in the closing stages of the race. Without wasting time, connections moved him to hurdles and shifted him up in trip to 2m4f.
Gold Cup Bailly went off the 8/11 favourite but only got within four lengths of Ahoy Senor as the two had pulled 15 lengths clear of third.
A strong performance saw the gelding make every yard and enjoy the further distance to use his strong stamina.
It doesn’t give us a lot to assess.
He’s only been seen twice under rules. The recent hurdle win looked smart but the third place has since been beaten in a low grade handicap off a mark of 110.
Hasn’t shown enough to think he’ll be competitive and he’s best avoided at a big price.
