The Statesman wins over hurdles at Ludlow
After showing progressive form on the flat in recent weeks, The Statesman turned his hand to the winter game and made a winning debut over hurdles at Ludlow under Tom O'Brien.
He jumped very professionally and apart from the last flight, his technique was sound.
He travelled like a quality juvenile hurdler for Tom and the result was never in doubt from three out.
