Today we are taking a trip down memory lane looking at last year's winner of the Grade Two Adonis Juvenile Hurdle at Kempton, with Tritonic bounding onto the scene as a Triumph Hurdle contender.

The five year old was a talented horse on the flat, winning at Royal Ascot in handicap company with a best rating of 97 during his time on the level.

Under superstar dual purpose trainer Alan King he moved his horse over hurdles and on debut at Ascot he went on to win nicely.

He came on massively for this next time out in the Adonis when bolting up by 10 lengths and putting himself to the top of the Triumph Hurdle market.

It wasn't to be at the Cheltenham festival for him but he has since stayed over hurdles and put up some superb runs that will not be forgotten in a hurry.
