John Quinn has singled out the Scottish Triumph Hurdle at Musselburgh on February 2 for Kashmir Peak.

The former Ger Lyons-trained juvenile has won both his starts over timber since joining Quinn in Malton and looked impressive when landing the Grade Two Summit Hurdle at Doncaster last month.

Quinn is also considering the Grade One Spring 4YO Hurdle at Leopardstown in which stablemate Countrywide Flame finished third last year, but at this stage a trip to Scotland is favourite.

"You'll probably see him next in the Scottish Triumph Hurdle at Musselburgh," said Quinn.

"He had an entry in the race we won at Doncaster yesterday (with Calculated Risk) but I wasn't keen on running with a double penalty.

"He could go to Ireland for the race in which Countrywide Flame was third last year, but I think we're likely to get better ground at Musselburgh than in Ireland."
