Crucial Moment and Sean Houlihan clear the last flight
Bill Turner celebrated a rare winner at Sandown after Crucial Moment stormed to his third victory of the campaign in the 32Red Casino Juvenile Hurdle.
Taking command of matters on the run down to the second last, the 3-1 shot quickly pressed on before crossing the line an eased-down two-and-three-quarter-length winner from Mister Chow.
Following the race, the winner was introduced at 33-1 by Paddy Power for the Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.
Turner said: “I was worried about the ground as he is a horse with a really nice action. He is so genuine and he loves the game which is half the battle.
“Sean (Houlihan) gave him a great ride and nursed him on the ground.
“Really now, on that, you have to be looking at the Fred Winter. You have to be rated about 130 to get in, but he would get in now.”
