CADELL ONE TO WATCH AFTER IMPRESSIVE HURDLE BOW
Killeen Glebe graduate Cadell shaped like an exciting prospect when making an impressive hurdle debut at Kelso on Sunday.
Successful on both his starts in point-to-points for Ronnie Bartlett, the son of Mahler finished a promising second in a bumper on his first start for Lucinda Russell in May.
He was well-supported in the market ahead of the Novices’ Hurdle over two miles and five furlongs, in which he raced in touch with the leaders under Derek Fox. Leaping into the lead at the final flight, he was pushed out to win by three lengths and three quarters from impressive maiden hurdle winner Dripsey Moon. Peter Scudamore confirmed the impressive nature of the performance when later describing Cadell as “a very exciting prospect.”
Cadell was bought by Killeen Glebe in tandem with Mags O’Toole as a foal and later resold by the farm at the Goffs Land Rover Sale for €90,000 to Ian Ferguson.
