Summerville Boy got our Cheltenham Festival off to a flying start by winning the Sky Bet Supreme Novices Hurdle (Grade 1) over 2 miles under a calm and collected ride from Noel Fehily. It was great to be able to repay Roger Brookhouse for his very loyal support over the years with a Festival winner! The first time earplugs seemed to make a huge difference to him meaning he could switch off nicely and finish strongly up the hill despite 2 late jumping errors.

He will now enjoy a summer out at grass allowing him to strengthen up and hopefully enjoy a just as successful 2nd season here at Down Farm.

A huge amount of credit must go to Jalam Singh who rides him everyday and can be seen leading him into the famous Cheltenham winners enclosure below.
