Stuart Edmunds has high hopes for the season ahead with Maria’s Benefit following her successful debut over fences at Newton Abbot.

The Grade Two-winning hurdler was sent off at odds on for her chasing bow, and produced an assured round of jumping to win a three-runner affair by nine lengths.

Newport Pagnell-based Edmunds said: “It was a big relief that she won, and it was a good performance. She has come out of the race really well.

“We changed her bit, which helped her, and I couldn’t be happier with her.

“I think she will go to Bangor for a mares’ Listed chase. I think that is the right race to go for, and she will have an entry in that. The first meeting at Cheltenham comes a bit too soon.

“We will take it a step at a time, but looking further ahead the Wayward Lad at Kempton over Christmas might be an option.”
