James Fanshawe may be known for his exploits on the level, but he is just as adept under National Hunt Rules and his Buster Hyvonen looks to have a good future over hurdles.
Twice a winner on the Flat, he was sent to Huntingdon for his debut over timber last month.
Ridden with plenty of confidence by Tony McCoy on that occasion, the four-year-old was held-up well off the pace before making up ground in effortless style three out and going clear to win by five lengths.
He may not have beaten much but the manner of his victory suggests he can could prove a smart recruit to the jumping game and the son of Dansili is taken to defy a penalty in the Bathwick Tyres Introductory Novices' Hurdle at Newbury today.
Maclean, twice a winner on the Flat when with Sir Michael Stoute, failed to show the same ability over hurdles - winning just one of his 16 starts - but there are hopes he may have a future over fences.
It did not seem so when he was a distant sixth on his chasing debut at Fontwell in June. Dropped in class and to the minimum trip at Folkestone this month, however, he put in a much improved display, finishing a length second to Bally Rainey.
He sticks to the same grade here but is stepped back up to two miles and three furlongs for the tote-course to course Novices' Handicap Chase at Taunton.
