Tritonic (5-6) tipped by fromthehorsesmouth.info landed the Grade 2 Class 1 Juvenile Hurdle over 2 miles under Adrian Heskin at Kempton Park on Saturday, ahead of a tilt at the Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival in March.
Alan King trained Tritonic odds were slashed from 8-1 to 4-1 for the Festival following an impressive 10 lengths victory over Casa Loupi (13-2) with Paso Doble (11-1) third.
“He will have learned from that and all is going well. He hit the line well and I’m very happy with him.
“He had a proper break after his Flat campaign. He has a great chance in the Triumph Hurdle,” said trainer King.
