Dalaman returned to hurdles and form at Ffos Las racecourse on Monday.
A talented hurdler, he won 3 of his 4 hurdles races last season (runner up in the other race). He had a nasty fall on his chase debut in October and was pulled-up on his next chase start.
We felt it in the best interest for Dalaman to go back hurdling and he bounced straight back to form finishing third in very testing conditions, just getting tired after the last, beaten around 3 lengths.
His jumping was almost perfect so we will continue over hurdles and forget about chasing at this stage.
His form figures over hurdles since joining Neil Mulholland’s yard is: 1,1,2,1,3.
