SUM­MER’S HOT STUFF

Daily Mirror - - CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL -

SUM­MERVILLE BOY spiked Kalash­nikov’s guns for a dra­matic win.

Tom Ge­orge’s pre­vi­ous Chel­tenham Fes­ti­val win­ner was with Galileo — the Pol­ish-bred geld­ing, not the su­per-stal­lion — in the 2002 Ballymore Novices’ Hur­dle.

Af­ter watch­ing the 9-1 shot get up in the fi­nal strides for a neck mar­gin, the trainer said: “It’s taken a few years to come back here, but we’ve had plenty of Grade 1 win­ners over the years.”

A mis­take at the sec­ond-last flight looked to have cost Sum­merville Boy dear, and Ge­orge added: “He’s tough.”
