Brindisi denies Bob in Bartlett16/03/2012 - 14:56:58
Brindisi Breeze landed a rare Scottish win at the Cheltenham Festival when Lucinda Russell’s charge upset the Irish banker Boston Bob in the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle.
Jockey Campbell Gillies was always up with the pace on the six-year-old and cut out most of the running along with Big Occasion.
Boston Bob looked as though he might peg back the leader, but Brindisi Breeze (7-1) kept up the gallop to beat the 6-5 favourite by two lengths.
Grand Vision (25-1) was another length and a quarter away in third.
