Jedd O’Keeffe is in hurry to get Tavus back to the track after making a winning hurdling debut on heavy ground at Newcastle last month.

The three-year-old got up in the shadow of the post to nail long-time leader Navajo Pass in the final strides on Fighting Fifth day at Gosforth Park – with that form being well boosted by the runner-up in Grade Two company at Doncaster on Saturday.

The Pour Moi gelding was bought out of Roger Charlton’s Beckhampton stables for 105,000 guineas at Tattersalls Autumn Sales.

“We’re not rushing him back, because obviously that would have been a bit of a slog on his first run over hurdles,” said the North Yorkshire handler.

“We don’t actually have a plan yet, but we’re 100 per cent happy with him.

“We were absolutely thrilled with the run.”
