Southwell: Legal Lunch shows high promise.

Byline: Colin Russell

LEGAL LUNCH looked a hurdler to follow when scoring a comfortable win in the featured 21/2-mile handicap hurdle, writes Colin Russell.

Successful at Fontwell as a novice last season, having been bought out of Peter Harris's yard for 12,000gns at Tattersalls last October, the six-year-old was always going well and drew clear under Sam Stronge to beat top-weight Present Bleu by seven lengths.

"We kept him ticking over on the Flat this year and I thought he was on a fair mark," said his trainer, Robert Stronge.

"We'll have to see what the handicapper does before deciding on his next race. My horses are in decent form; this was my second successive winner, and Sam is going well-this made it four wins from his last seven rides."
