with plenty of confidence behind him in the market, not only banished the memories of his subdued showing in the Champion Chase but proved better than ever as he put up a performance every bit as authoritative - indeed possibly even more so - as Cyrname in the Ascot Chase, handing out a very similar beating to Politologue and a bigger one to Waiting Patiently, the return to front-running seeming very much in his favour (usual earplugs left out); he had various pursuers but jumped boldly in front, gained a couple of lengths on his rivals under a motionless Walsh at the third last, easily drew clear from the next and was already in full control when measuring the last superbly; with Altior and Cyrname set to clash at Sandown, Min should have the Punchestown Champion Chase at his mercy, while connections will no doubt be eyeing another crack at Altior next season on the back of this.
made all, jumped boldly, quickened 2 out, drew clear between last 2, in control long way out

back up in trip, had edged out Min to win this last year but had little hope of containing him this time given the brilliance of that one's performance, the effort of giving chase seeming to tell (was said to have bled); chased leader until fourth, allowed to slide back to fourth at the seventh, went second again 3 out but was left behind by the winner from the next.

began the season with so much potential (sent off just 4/1 for the King George on his reappearance) but, though unlucky that day, hasn't got close to the form of his listed win at Kempton last season - let alone his Ascot Chase performance - in 2 subsequent outings this campaign, the application of first-time cheekpieces failing to produce the desired spark; typically waited with, his rider gave him a slap down the neck after the ninth and, though he made ground out wide 4 out, he wasn't fluent either there or the next and couldn't make any further impression, disappointingly readily seen off by Politologue for second.

back up in trip, again looked comfortable at this level for a long way but found his jumping letting him down in the second half of the race; settled in touch, he went second before the eighth but made a bad mistake at the eleventh, already on the retreat when not fluent 4 out and held when steadied into 2 out.

won this race in 2016 but his best days are surely behind him now and was well below form, perhaps something of a rush to get him back after being struck into at Cheltenham; patiently ridden, untidy eighth, effort approaching home turn, held when steadied into 2 out.

again ran poorly back over fences, probably more to it than just a fairly shoddy round of jumping; mid-division, untidy first, chased leader briefly from fourth, blundered eighth, lost place and shaken up circuit out, lost further ground eleventh, reminders after, weakening when clouted 4 out, pulled up; he has something to prove now, though the Oaksey Chase at Sandown that he won last year would give him a platform to do so.

No Altior or Cyrname, or any representative from the Ryanair at Cheltenham, but the 2019 Melling Chase still brought together 3 top-class chasers and will be remembered as quite possibly the crowning moment of Min's career as he surpassed the aforementioned Cyrname's Ascot Chase demolition both in terms of winning margin and, most likely, form - even a conservative view of this sees him running to a mark in the mid-170s; there was plenty of chopping and changing for second place without anything going as far as taking the winner on in front, though that's not to say the pace wasn't an end-to-end one.
