Virtuel D’Oudon continued his impressive start to life under rules with victory at Fontwell on Tuesday.
David Pipe’s five-year-old son of Network won the Docker Hughes Memorial Novices’ Hurdle at 2/1.
The triumph under jockey Conor O’Farrell followed up a bumper success in the hands of Tom Scudamore – to make him unbeaten in two starts since switching from Irish points.
O’Farrell was impressed with his mount, who is clearly destined for bigger things.
The rider said: ‘He was a bit green and babyish and was pricking his ears in front.
‘But he has a great attitude and jumped superbly for first time out (over hurdles).’
