has improved out of all recognition, winning his first handicap from a mark of just 105 and beaten in one from a mark of 131 as recently as October yet now looking potentially the dominant staying hurdler, such was the brazen way he grabbed this prize, setting a gallop considerably quicker than in the Pertemps Final earlier on the card yet never really looking susceptible to the finishers, all achieved under a rider who was called up only earlier in the day, too, regular partner Jonathan Moore declaring himself unfit to take the ride following a fall at Naas the previous weekend; made all, jumped well, travelled fluently, still going well entering straight, brought towards stand rail but wanted to lug back left, in control when jinked after last, kept going well; has plenty of time on his side as a 6-y-o, though his style isn't exactly reminiscent of those that have dominated this division this century, and perhaps not one renowned for longevity.

so well suited to this C&D, ran at least as well as when landing his second Pertemps Final 12 months earlier, closing the gap on Flooring Porter from the Leopardstown Christmas Hurdle but finding that 3-year-younger rival improving too much for him to overhaul; hampered slightly start, mid-division, untidy third, effort from 3 out, took second run-in, stayed on but no real impression on winner; like so many from his yard, he's become a real Festival stalwart, also placed in the Martin Pipe before those 2 Pertemps Final wins.

bidding to become the first since Inglis Drever to regain the Stayers' Hurdle crown, briefly seemed to get motoring turning for home in a manner similar to the surge that had taken him to the front 2 years earlier (trading as low as 1.58 in-running) but couldn't find an extra gear, perhaps suffering from the cancellation of the Cleeve Hurdle, meaning this was his first run in 13 weeks, possibly set to improve a little for it should he go to Aintree or Punchestown, though neither course is likely to suit him as well as this one; held up, untidy at the seventh where he was also hampered, pushed along before 3 out, made some headway out wide next and threatened entering straight but one paced latter stages, taking third only near finish.

is still firmly on the up and shaped a bit better than the bare result, not quite relaxing well enough on this first try at 3m to see the race out as well as dour stayers Sire du Berlais and Paisley Park, both of whom passed him only on the run-in after he'd looked the biggest threat to the winner from the point he'd moved into second crossing 2 out; he's got the option of going chasing next season.

under Townend this year as the sole Mullins representative, was ridden every bit as patiently as previously in the race, firmly off the pace 3 out and still with plenty to do after the next, meeting some trouble approaching the home turn and unable to find any extra when asked for his effort in the straight; now 10, this was a stronger renewal than the one in which he'd finished third 12 months earlier and he has just a listed hurdle success to his name over the past 4 seasons.

shaped better than the distance beaten suggests after 10 weeks off, though a tame finish on the back of yet another breathing operation, his third in the space of 5 runs, is a cause for concern, even were he to head back for the Sandown race on the final day of the season he won in 2019; chased leaders, yet to be asked for effort when untidy 2 out, not quicken from there, weakened early in straight.

was clearly fancied to overturn Leopardstown Christmas Hurdle form with Flooring Porter and Sire du Berlais given the amount of money for him, and it's easy to put a line through this, the effort of getting back into the race after he was seriously impeded by Lisnagar Oscar's fall leaving him with nothing left late on; raced wide, held up, not fluent fourth, badly hampered seventh, crept closer after 3 out, effort after next, weakened, pulled up last.

All 15 ran. Hurdles: 12.

Winning Owner: Flooring Porter Syndicate

Overrounds: Industry SP 119%, Betfair SP 99.5%

Perhaps not quite of Allaho proportions, but a pretty staggering performance in its own right, the winner setting a gallop considerably quicker than in the Pertemps Final a little over an hour earlier yet never really looking like being overhauled, such a display even more remarkable considering he was beaten in a handicap from a mark of 131 as recently as October; some of the competition was removed when last year's winner fell soon after halfway, badly hampering the well-backed Fury Road, putting a slight limitation on the form, but all of the other main contenders had a chance of sorts from 2 out; ante-post favourite Thyme Hill had been ruled out of the race the week before, offering a crumb of comfort for British racing fans faced with a largely Irish-dominated finish in a division which, since Big Buck's, has been very even, this incidentally one of 5 races on the day in which at least the first 2 home were trained in Ireland.
