Lucky Flight ensured that our wait for a winner was over quickly as he won the first race of the new season at Kelso.
A free running sort at home, Stephen has done a magnificent job of settling him and his endeavours paid off with a front running win. I was most impressed by Lucky Flights determination despite being bumped on the approach to the last hurdle and this tough five year old should have a bright future.
It is especially satisfying to train another winner for The Vikings, Carsten and Morten are racing mad Scandinavian owners who love their British Racing and, importantly, their horses.
Arizona Bound put in a better round of jumping and though the ground was a bit lively for him this was a solid start to his season.
