Drying ground at Ascot was the key to a fine victory by Geezer Rockstar in a competitive maiden hurdle that opened the card on Sunday 24 March.

We’ve always felt he was an exciting prospect since his success on his debut in a bumper at Taunton in April last season.

He then ran with plenty of promise on his first start over hurdles at the same track in December when he was a big green and showed he needed further. But next time on New Year’s Day he couldn’t handle horribly testing conditions at Exeter and was eventually pulled up.

Ever since we’ve just been waiting in frustration for the weather to change in the  favour of Geezer Rockstar and it was brilliant to see him show his true colours as he stepped up in trip at Ascot.
He looked to have a serious battle on his hands at the final flight before buckling down to see off the sustained challenge of the well fancied Irish raider Zanndabad.

It’s encouraging that he beat the two form horses in the race and Johnny Burke loved the determined attitude of Geezer Rockstar in the closing stages.

We could look at one more run for him this season in a Class 2 race over a similar trip at  Cheltenham next month.
