Bun Doran (Shantou) wins the Grade II Desert Orchid Chase at Kempton for trainer Tom George and owners The Crossed Fingers Partnership.
He jumped with plenty of zest under Jonathan Burke and seemed to really enjoy the sharp test the Kempton presents. There was plenty of fluency to this performance and he beat a strong enough field with last years Arkle winner Duc Des Genievres in second and the serial Grade I performer Sceau Royal in third.
The likeable 8yo has been a great servant to all those connected to him and it was wonderful to see him get his day in the sun here.
Bun Doran was a £76,000 purchase from the 2015 Tattersalls Cheltenham May Sale. For more information regarding potential purchase opportunities please do not hesitate to get in touch.
