has had a terrific season regardless of the fact that he's been helped no end by Sprinter Sacre missing out, worthy of the utmost credit for taking advantage of all of the good opportunities that have arose, as it still takes a lot to dominate a division in the way that he has, faced with some new opponents here and seeing them off with yet another impressive display to add to those he'd produced in both the Tingle Creek and Clarence House, admittedly in a race that was set up for him to be seen to maximum effect; patiently ridden, jumped accurately, smooth headway after 4 out, challenged 2 out, led between last 2 and forged clear, suited by coming from off the strong pace but clearly the best horse in the race in any case; it'll be much, much tougher in the top 2m races next season than has been the case in recent months, Simonsig set to return as well as the outstanding Sprinter Sacre, but Sire de Grugy could hardly be more tough, likeable and consistent and will give such opponents something to think about if they do meet; nearer to hand he could go back to Sandown for the Celebration Chase in late-April and he'll hard to beat if that is indeed where he turns up.

who sweated up beforehand, has proven this season that even as a veteran he remains a high-class chaser and, back in cheekpieces, ran up to his best to be placed in another Grade 1, doing well under the circumstances too, faring best of those that helped to cut out the strong pace; close up, went with zest, edged ahead after eighth, headed after 4 out, untidy next, led again home turn, headed again between last 2, one paced, no match for winner even if tactics played a bit of a part.

produced a career best to be placed on his first foray into a Grade 1 but there was an opportunistic element to what he achieved, very much helped by the way the race developed, particularly as one who stays further, and he's possibly even a little flattered; mid-field, went in snatches, tracked pace 4 out, not fluent next, lost place before running on late as others tired; uncertain to reproduce this form next time.

isn't the same force he was even at this time last year, age taking its toll, but this was a cracking effort in first-time cheekpieces on his first start since late-December, worth marking up slightly for making his effort earlier than ideal in a strongly-run affair; tracked pace, travelled smoothly, challenged 4 out, every chance 2 out, tied up flat; his days at the top level are surely numbered, though.

didn't end up running far below form but made no telling impression and was helped by being held up in a strongly-run race, passing/closing down ones that had already done plenty as his stamina for further came into play; raced off the pace, hampered 4 out, driven after 3 out, kept on, never landed a blow.

wasn't on a going day even if getting hampered by Baily Green's fall 4 out was the final nail in the coffin; dropped out, jumped sketchily, struggling when hampered 4 out, made no impression; has plenty of ability but not straightforward and is hard to catch right.

is very good on his day, even if holes can be picked in his small-field Grade 1 wins in Ireland, but for the second year running he proved to be a big disappointment at this meeting; prominent, led sixth, bad mistake eighth, headed soon after, folded after 4 out, eased off.

is a sound jumper on the whole and this was the first time he's either fallen or unseated over fences; mid-division, mistake third, jumped right fifth, crept closer ninth, in touch when fell 4 out, too far out to suggest outcome.

who'd been off 3 months since winning the Henry VIII Novices' Chase at Sandown, swerved the Arkle to take his chance in this and was unfortunate not to complete; held up, took strong hold, yet to be asked for effort when hampered and unseated 4 out; he was in the process of running well, though too far out to suggest where he'd have finished, and remains open to improvement.

All 11 ran. Fences: 13.

Winning Owner: The Preston Family & Friends Ltd

Time: 3m 48.9s Closing Sectional: (3.84f): 53.50s (102.7%)

There was always going to be a hollow element to the 2014 Champion Chase after Sprinter Sacre - last year's brilliant winner of this race and the third-highest rated National Hunt horse in Timeform's history - was ruled out in mid-February, making for a much-diluted renewal, with 2013 Arkle winner Simonsig having been missing all season too, but Sire de Grugy has well and truly grasped the opportunity to be the season's top 2m chaser and he pinned down his status as just that with a top-class effort that saw him run out a fairly emphatic winner; there was competition for the lead that led to a strong pace, set by Special Tiara, all of those close up going too hard, and the way it panned out was ideal for the winner, third and fifth given how they were ridden, though with no suggestion whatsoever that Sire de Grugy was flattered.

SIRE DE GRUGY (FR) has had a terrific season regardless of the fact that he's been helped no end by Sprinter Sacre missing out, worthy of the utmost credit for taking advantage of all of the good opportunities that have arose, as it still takes a lot to dominate a division in the way that he has, faced with some new opponents here and seeing them off with yet another impressive display to add to those he'd produced in both the Tingle Creek and Clarence House, admittedly in a race that was set up for him to be seen to maximum effect; patiently ridden, jumped accurately, smooth headway after 4 out, challenged 2 out, led between last 2 and forged clear, suited by coming from off the strong pace but clearly the best horse in the race in any case; it'll be much, much tougher in the top 2m races next season than has been the case in recent months, Simonsig set to return as well as the outstanding Sprinter Sacre, but Sire de Grugy could hardly be more tough, likeable and consistent and will give such opponents something to think about if they do meet; nearer to hand he could go back to Sandown for the Celebration Chase in late-April and he'll hard to beat if that is indeed where he turns up.
