TORRAN SOUND provided owner Charlie Curtis with a perfect birthday present by winning on his hurdling debut at Market Rasen this afternoon. The winner came as a huge relief to the Park Lodge team as the horses have been under a cloud so it shows they are coming back to form. TORRAN SOUND will continue a hurdling campaign for the moment. He obviously acts on fast ground and there are greater opportiunities for him over hurdles than on the flat at the moment. He will revert to the flat at some stage but not until there are some suitable staying races for him. The horse was originally bought as a dual purpose prospect so he has achieved half that and can hopefully win on the flat at some stage in the future.
