Cross on top in Musselburgh test13th February 2013
Peddlers Cross had to work a little harder than expected in landing odds of 1-5 in the Howies Restaurants Edinburgh Hurdle at Musselburgh.
Donald McCain's 2011 Champion Hurdle runner-up tracked his stablemate Ubaltique into the straight before hitting the front at the third-last. However, he failed to put the race to bed immediately and Orsippus and latterly Cue To Cue both sensed their chance at the final flight.
Jason Maguire picked his stick up after the last and Peddlers Cross did quicken clear to eventually pass the line hard held in winning by a length and three-quarters from Cue To Cue.
