Stayed on well to take third. Original quote: "Mustang Alpha - Is a nicely-bred 4 year-old out of a sister to a Grade One winner. He was impressive when winning his Irish Point in the Spring on decent ground - therefore, it was understandable that he didn't like the bad ground at Cheltenham on his racecourse debut in a bumper. Back on better ground today and over hurdles here for the first time. I'd like to think he can leave his bumper form well behind. This looks quite a competitive race but I'd be hoping he can at least run into a place."
