Huntingdon: Poliglote gelding impresses

THE Nicky Henderson-trained Spirit Son wasall the rage in the 2m novice hurdle at Huntingdon and duly lived up to his billing with a two-and-a-half length victory over fellow French-bred Sivola De Sivola.

Already a Listed hurdle winner in his native France, Spirit Son is by the 1995 Prix du Jockey-Club third Poliglote, best known in jumping circles as the sire of Lingo and Butler's Cabin. Spirit Son is a half-brother to four winners from as many foals out of the winning jumper Kirzinnia, among them the smart French hurdler Risko.
