leaves the impression he'd stay 6m if such a race existed and his staying prowess shone through under a fine, positive ride, better than ever faced with this trademark slog in edging out another facing optimum conditions; disputed lead, ridden when blundered 4 out and dropped to third soon after, still in that position when crossing last but rallied well run-in and found plenty to lead well inside final 1f, most game; his chance next time, as always, will be conditional, though it's hard to imagine how he'll ever better this career-high with so much in his favour on the day.

finally put it all together, just unfortunate to do so in a race featuring another who relished the examination, benefiting no end from first-time blinkers and a marathon trip back from a refreshing 7 weeks off, a career-best display on his part; helped force pace, went on soon after 4 out, headed before 2 out, led briefly again final 100 yds, stayed on strongly, edged out only late on; given his past record, plus the fact this saw him to full advantage, he's uncertain to reproduce this form next time.

has already done well in little time with this yard but this was something else, well into the veteran stage but running his best ever race on the back of a defeat in a lower grade at Kelso, even then looking better than the result, briefly appearing to have matters in hand having gone like the best horse at the weights, rather giving it away after his rider had failed to keep him straight under pressure; handy, travelled strongly and jumped well, produced to lead soon after 3 out, edged left run-in, collared well inside final 1f, no extra.

Non Runners: MIDNIGHT PRAYER. Fences: 22.

Winning Owner: The Bellamy Partnership

Time: 8m 6.2s

As usual no hiding place in this prestigious Christmastime marathon, though the 4 who came clear while the rest floundered were all in their element faced with such a slog and can be rated fairly positively as a result, previous winner Monbeg Dude unable to get to grips with the trio ahead, all of whom had been in the firing line throughout in a well-run race, such positive tactics often a favoured approach on the chase course here, the pair who set out to force the gallop split by next to no distance at the line in a stirring finish.

EMPEROR'S CHOICE (IRE) leaves the impression he'd stay 6m if such a race existed and his staying prowess shone through under a fine, positive ride, better than ever faced with this trademark slog in edging out another facing optimum conditions; disputed lead, ridden when blundered 4 out and dropped to third soon after, still in that position when crossing last but rallied well run-in and found plenty to lead well inside final 1f, most game; his chance next time, as always, will be conditional, though it's hard to imagine how he'll ever better this career-high with so much in his favour on the day.
