Kalashnikov outguns Betfair Hurdle rivalsPosted on Saturday 10th February 2018 @ 17.05

Kalashnikov saw off a tough field to win the Betfair Hurdle at Newbury on Saturday, beating Bleu Et Rouge by four-and-a-half lengths.

In what was the highlight of young trainer Amy Murphy's fledgling career, Kalashnikov, bred and owned by her father Paul, became the latest novice to triumph in the richest handicap hurdle in the calendar.

Sent off as 8/1 co-favourite, Kalashnikov was expertly guided home by jockey Jack Quinlan, seeing off Bleu Et Rouge's challenge while Spiritofthegames finished third and Coeur Blimey was fourth.

Quinlan was delighted with the victory and admitted it had come on ground not entirely suitable on the day.

He said: "He is a horse we think an awful lot of. On better ground we would have really fancied him. The rain was a bit of a worry after he got bogged down at Sandown.

"To be fair to him he hasn't enjoyed it for the first mile but his class has brought him through. He is so tough."

Quinlan added: "He is maturing all the time. He is only a five-year-old and that was only the sixth start of his career. He has improved from Sandown.

"It's fantastic to win. Amy and her father have shown great loyalty. It would be easy for her to put the horse into the hands of someone with slightly more experience of the big days. It makes the job of a jockey much easier if you know you have the confidence of those behind you."
