erased the memory of his Aintree blowout right away returned to the scene of his finest hour in an otherwise hard-to-fault novice season, making an immediate step up switching to open company for the first time in dominating traditionally one of the strongest handicaps of the season, able to beat the runner-up further than he had off levels in the Turners, all despite a last-fence error that would have derailed many an inferior; his jumping was superb otherwise under a trademark positive ride, leading outright at the ninth, soon taking full command when asked entering the straight and 5 lengths to the good when getting the last wrong and slithering on landing, somehow picking up again well enough to pass the line only a length fewer to the good; he was shortened to a general 5/1 for the Ryanair in the aftermath and it's hard to dispute such a positive view, given not only his overall progress and effectiveness on both Cheltenham tracks but also the merely workmanlike belated return from division-standout Allaho in the preceding days; as an aside, he's yet another nod to the consistent strength of the Timeform-sponsored novice handicap on Trials' Day, a race he landed from a mark fully 13 lb lower directly prior to his Festival win.

showed the benefit of his comeback, beaten further by Stage Star than when they'd met off level weights at the Festival but still posting a personal best in defeat in beating all the others, emerging as the only threat as he moved up to give chase approaching the straight but not good enough to take advantage of the winner's last-fence blunder; he's yet another in recent weeks to highlight his stable's rejuvenation.

added to his sound record in the big middle-distance handicap chases at this track, a pair of second-season rivals just progressing to a level he couldn't match for all he's a year their junior; mid-division, not settle fully, took closer order back straight, ridden when baulked approaching straight, took third flat, no match for principals; he still hasn't raced around 2m since his novice days but has often looked worth the switch.

A positive trade-off in this year's Paddy Power as a second successive season of only 14 turning up was more than salved by a big upturn in quality that saw a handful rated in excess of 150 take part, topped by The Real Whacker, one of 2 Grade 1 winning novices in the field and the highest-rated runner to take part since 2010; in event, it was the class of one of that group that shone through as Stage Star posted one of the biggest handicap performances in recent years in overcoming a late scare to see off the rival who'd also given him most to think about in the 'Golden Miller' here back in March.

STAGE STAR (IRE) erased the memory of his Aintree blowout right away returned to the scene of his finest hour in an otherwise hard-to-fault novice season, making an immediate step up switching to open company for the first time in dominating traditionally one of the strongest handicaps of the season, able to beat the runner-up further than he had off levels in the Turners, all despite a last-fence error that would have derailed many an inferior; his jumping was superb otherwise under a trademark positive ride, leading outright at the ninth, soon taking full command when asked entering the straight and 5 lengths to the good when getting the last wrong and slithering on landing, somehow picking up again well enough to pass the line only a length fewer to the good; he was shortened to a general 5/1 for the Ryanair in the aftermath and it's hard to dispute such a positive view, given not only his overall progress and effectiveness on both Cheltenham tracks but also the merely workmanlike belated return from division-standout Allaho in the preceding days; as an aside, he's yet another nod to the consistent strength of the Timeform-sponsored novice handicap on Trials' Day, a race he landed from a mark fully 13 lb lower directly prior to his Festival win.
