Cliffs of Dover on the mark again

Cliffs Of Dover took his tally over jumps to six when leading from start to finish in the bet365 Summit Juvenile Hurdle at Doncaster.

Cliffs Of Dover: On a roll over hurdles.

The three-year-old never saw a rival as he ran the opposition into the ground to give trainer Paul Nicholls a treble on the card.

Harry Cobden had to get a little serious on the dash to the line after jumping the last as Lord Justice closed the gap, but the 1/3 favourite had enough in hand to win cosily.

Cobden said: "He's a proper horse, I was quick out of the gates on him today. I didn't realise how far clear I was down the back and I think he just idled in the straight.

"I think he'd have gone again if anything had come close.

"He's won at Cheltenham already in a handicap when I was five or 10 lengths off the leaders and I gave him a flick and he flew.

"He's very exciting, I think he'll go to the Triumph now."
