Jumps: well-made gelding: winning hurdler: top-class chaser: won Cheltenham Gold Cup (by 4½ lengths from Might Bite) in 2017/18: not quite at best this season faced with less emphasis on stamina: 6/1, 9¼ lengths fourth of 16 to Al Boum Photo in latest renewal of Cheltenham Gold Cup last time, never looking comfortable: stays 4m: goes very well on soft/heavy going: wears cheekpieces: bold-jumping front runner.

had such a demanding race when winning this so memorably last year that it may be it has impacted on his performances since, though a sluggish start immediately put him on the back foot and he had to expend energy working his way into a customary position, some effort to finish with running left in the circumstances, all under conditions less testing than suit ideally; raced lazily at start, went prominent fifth, led eleventh to fifteenth, led again seventeenth, headed approaching 2 out and outpaced, plugged on run-in.

hadn't run right handed since finishing third to Tea For Two when favourite for the 2015 Kauto Star, no more suited by the track now than he was then, never looking at ease and compounding the situation by again jumping left; chased leaders, jumped left, never travelling well, lost place thirteenth, rallied after 2 out, took moderate third run-in, stayed on, made no impression on first 2; it's easy enough to excuse his runs this season - in contrast to Might Bite - and he remains a leading contender for the Gold Cup come the spring.

who hadn't been seen since winning the Gold Cup, made a very solid return from 8 months off, not performing to his very best but doing all that he could under conditions that didn't place enough emphasis on stamina as is ideal for such a strong stayer; never far away, led fourth, headed sixth, led again thirteenth, headed again 4 out, outpaced but typically stuck to task; this certainly suggests that he'll prove as good as ever this season, and he'll merit the utmost respect in all of the big staying chases, especially if the mud is flying.

16 Mar 18 Chl C1 Grade 1 1/15 4.50 Chase G1 26.3f Heavy (s) Richard Johnson 5/16 6.8 7/- 1jR 105.5 179 170 181
had a different preparation for this year's Gold Cup, and that he arrived a fresher horse than 12 months earlier was probably a help, his small-field Newbury win the ideal stepping stone to get him here all guns blazing for a career-best performance, whilst conditions were a factor too, bringing his stamina into play more than on good ground last year; forcing the pace, he jumped boldly, ridden after 3 out and headed narrowly 2 out, immediately fighting back and in front again jumping the last, edging right but finding plenty up the hill, outstaying the runner-up; this gave trainer Colin Tizzard a first Gold Cup win and Champion Jockey Richard Johnson a second 18 years after Looks Like Trouble, and no doubt Native River will be back to make another bold bid in the next couple of years, not over-raced for an 8-y-o which ought to help with his longevity; shorter term he'll probably go for the Bowl at Aintree, where he won the Mildmay as a novice, but a thorough test suits him best and if he comes up against Might Bite again over 1f shorter on the flat track there he's going to be vulnerable to his speed.
10 Feb 18 Nwb C1 Grade 2 1/3 12 Chase G2 23.4f Soft (s) Richard Johnson 8/111.72f 1.79 1.82/- 1jr 104.7 176 170+ 181+
shaped as if retaining all his ability after 11 months off, on a track that suits him well, this an ideal Gold Cup preparation; made all, jumped well, shaken up straight, kept on well after 2 out, well on top finish; his best form is a notch below that of Might Bite and Sizing John and third in the ante-post lists behind that pair for the Gold Cup seems about right, though he's an admirable racehorse and sure to give a good account when the day comes.

is a splendid horse in every way and, though he came up just short in his first attempt at this level, he never stopped trying, even as others were going better than him, battling back past Djakadam near the finish; led from second, headed seventh, led again fifteenth, headed 4 out, every chance 2 out, not quicken, kept on well run-in; he was so good at Aintree last season, that he must go well in the Bowl if sent there this time, hopefully a fixture at this level for several seasons to come.
11 Feb 17 Nwb C1 Grade 2 1/3 3.25 Chase G2 23.4f Gd/Sft (s) Aidan Coleman 11/102.1 2.25 2.18/- 1j 112.7 122 155+ 166+
didn't need to improve to complete his hat-trick but scored in style, coping well with what was much more a test of speed than his 2 previous wins this season; made all, jumped well in main (nimble when wrong at water jump), pushed along 4 out, quickened clear after 2 out, well on top finish; he's had the perfect campaign to this point, and while he may not have shown quite the ability of his stable-companions Thistlecrack and Cue Card, he still has more to offer and displays many of the qualities one would look for in a Gold Cup winner.
27 Dec 16 Chp C1 Hcap 1/20 1.75 Chase 155 29.5f Soft (s) Richard Johnson 11/43.75f 3.85 5/- 2jR 104.3 162 161+ 172+
well-in off effectively the same mark as in the Hennessy, added a second prestigious staying handicap to his portfolio in near identical fashion, another magnificent display of resolute galloping; pressed leader, jumped well in main, went on tenth, pushed along before 5 out, drew clear next, stayed on strongly, closed down only late on; the Grand National is arguably his best of end-of-season target, though he's well and truly earned a crack at an open Grade 1 first, even if it'll clearly take a chunk more improvement to mix it with the likes of his outstanding stable-companions Thistlecrack and Cue Card.
26 Nov 16 Nwb C1 Hcap 1/19 0.50 Chase 155 26f Good (s) Richard Johnson 7/24.5f 4.97 5.7/- 1jr 100.5 160 157+ 168+
was well backed on his return to fences and progressed again on his first start out of novice company, showing all the qualities that had made his novice campaign such a success, as at Aintree Richard Johnson looking the perfect partner for him; pressed leader, jumped soundly, led second until after fifth, led fifteenth, ridden home turn, headed 4 out, rallied to lead again 2 out, 3 lengths clear soon after last, idled and needed to be driven out; he can be rated as better than his winning margin, given the idling, and may yet have more to offer, the Welsh National an option next, though a campaign at a higher level is on the cards with even the Cheltenham Gold Cup a realistic goal, not to mention the obvious target of the Grand National.
29 Oct 16 Wth C1 Grade 2 2/6 2.75 Hurdle G2 24.1f Good (s) Richard Johnson 5/23.5 3.87 -/2.02 1r 101.5 154 145+ 156+
was strong in the betting returned to hurdles after 7 months off yet could easily come on for this sufficiently to make him a big contender in the Hennessy, a race that promises to play right to his strengths, clearly a positive anyway that this goes down as the best he's ever run in this sphere; made running, shaken up early final circuit, headed before 3 out, rallied well from next, held only final 50 yds; he's all about stamina and, still only a 6-y-o, is one to keep on side this season when that quality is at a premium.

8 Apr 16 Ain C1 Grade 1 1/8 3.00 Chase G1 25f Gd/Sft (s) Richard Johnson 11/26.5 6.64 8.4/- 1jR 99.5 164 154+ 165+
has upped his form a notch with cheekpieces on the last twice, now achieving the sort of ratings that looked likely after he won a Grade 2 at Newbury earlier in the season, dropping back in trip no problem here as Richard Johnson, who was riding him for the first time, made full use of his stamina with an excellent, positive ride that suited down to the ground; made all, jumped well in main, hit twelfth, driven soon after, tackled 3 out but found plenty and proved determined; he's a likeable type even though he has a lazy streak and he's stood up well to a busy schedule this season, Punchestown reportedly an option for him in another few weeks.
15 Mar 16 Chl C1 Listed 2/20 1.25 Chase L 31.8f Good (s) Mr M. Legg 7/18 8.09 -/2.02 2xR 104.0 139 150? 161?
was well served by the extra distance and ran as well as he ever has, in cheekpieces first time, though even over 4m he lost concentration at a crucial stage before finishing off really well; chased leaders, bad mistake thirteenth, ridden 4 out, outpaced next, stayed on strongly after last; he surely has a good long-distance handicap in him at some stage, provided his temperament holds.
6 Feb 16 Wth C1 Grade 2 3/6 18 Chase G2 24.2f Heavy Brendan Powell 11/43.75 3.9 -/2.6 2l 92.6 141 137? 148?
was back under conditions that ought to have served him well, but he disappointed, leaving the firm impression that he would benefit from a try in headgear; close up, went in snatches, not fluent eleventh, lost touch home turn, plugged on after 2 out; he seems more likely to run in the NH Chase than the RSA after this, though either would be highly optimistic if he doesn't apply himself better.
26 Dec 15 Kem C1 Grade 1 3/7 8 Chase G1 24f Gd/Sft Brendan Powell 6/42.5f 2.75 -/2.5 3 102.2 123 143+ 154+
faced a very different test from Newbury and ran respectably, in spite of rather than because of it, the return right handed, the sharper track and a less well-run race all factors that told against him; waited with, jumped left, lost place eleventh, rallied thirteenth, not quicken straight; remains open to improvement and should soon bounce back.
26 Nov 15 Nwb C1 Grade 2 1/7 3.75 Chase G2 23.4f Soft Brendan Powell 8/19 10.37 16.5/- 3r 103.9 160 150+ 161+
is really blossoming as a chaser, this another significant step forward, suggesting he can play a leading role in top prizes for the rest of the season, the Kauto Star at Kempton the obvious next step; waited with, chased leader after fourteenth, stayed on to lead soon after 2 out, kept on well, ridden out; open to further improvement and one to keep on right side.
3 Nov 15 Exe C2 Novice 1/5 16 Chase N 24.3f Soft Brendan Powell 11/82.37f 2.49 6/- 3r 90.4 144 139+ 150+
fully confirmed the promise of his chasing debut and looks a smart staying prospect, showing abundant stamina on his return to 3m; waited with, blundered twelfth, pushed along fourteenth, led 3 out, drew clear after next, kept on well; one to keep on right side.
10 Oct 15 Chp C2 Novice 3/7 3.75 Chase N 19.5f Good Brendan Powell 10/111 13.26 -/6 3ro 107.0 135+ 146+
a very progressive novice hurdler pre-Cheltenham, shaped very well sent chasing after 7 months off, enough in his display to think he can prove the best of these over fences, certainly one to keep on the right side this season; mid-division, outpaced early in straight, rallied well from 3 out, effort and looking set to come through for second when blundered last, finished with running left, the relative emphasis on speed not in his favour; has scope for plenty of improvement.

13 Mar 15 Chl C1 Grade 1 9/19 53 Hurdle G1 24f Gd/Sft Brendan Powell 40/141 45.86 -/40 2x 90 101
better judged on previous form as a blunder before halfway put him on the back foot; raced along inside, chased leaders, bad mistake sixth, lost place, struggling next; should stay 3m but did win at 17f last time.
8 Feb 15 Exe C1 Listed 1/6 4.50 Hurdle L 17f Gd/Sft Brendan Powell 9/25.5 6.53 48/- 1r 99.1 145+ 156+
despite 3f shorter trip, produced his best effort so far, though taking advantage of shortcomings of others; led until before second, led again before 3 out, kept on well after 2 out, kept up to work; entered in the Spa at Cheltenham, but will need to step up quite a bit further to make an impact there.
24 Jan 15 Chl C1 Grade 2 F/9 Hurdle G2 20.5f Soft Tom Scudamore 16/117 21.29 -/20 2x 102.6 +
failed to complete, still in with a chance when he came down, though hard to say where he would have finished; prominent, pushed along after 3 out, close up when fell next.
29 Dec 14 Nwb C1 Grade 1 6/6 11.5 Hurdle G1 21f Soft Brendan Powell 9/110 11 -/6.2 2 136 147
wasn't up to this better company and will need his sights lowering again, but it was a creditable effort on form; close up, driven 2 out, faded.
29 Nov 14 Nwc C2 Novice 1/6 2.75 Hurdle N 22f Heavy Brendan Powell 10/111 13.17 38/- 1r 134+ 145+
has made a promising start over hurdles, best to concentrate on that rather than the fact he had the run of this race compared to a runner-up who'll likely prove his superior, still open to improvement for all he didn't have to better his Stratford form in all likelihood; dictated and crucially settled really well, quickened entering straight, joined between last 2 but hadn't had to work hard until then and able to find extra; he's going to make a smashing chaser.
30 Oct 14 Str C5 Novice 1/13 3.75 Hurdle N 22.5f Gd/Sft Brendan Powell 8/19 10.5 13/- 2R 118+ 129+
placed on his only start in bumpers 3 weeks earlier, looked a real stayer as he made a successful debut over hurdles; handy, pushed along after 2 out, chased leader before straight, found plenty to lead approaching last, not fluent there, forged clear; this form is tricky to assess, but he's open to improvement whatever it's worth.
10 Oct 14 NAb C6 Stks 3/7 8 NH Flat W 17f Soft Brendan Powell 7/18 9.94 -/5 2 87 98
(by Indian River: half-brother to winning hurdler/useful chaser Orpheus Valley (2½m-2¾m winner, by Beneficial): dam unraced from family of very smart hurdler/useful chaser Minella Lad) showed ability in an Irish point back in March (in with a chance of being placed when falling last) and confirmed that impression on Rules debut; prominent, upsides leaving back straight, outpaced by winner 2f out, kept on.
