found refitted cheekpieces sparking a return to form and summoned up plenty of improvement to land this valuable prize, showing himself well suited by a marathon trip at the second time of asking, having failed to give his running for whatever reason in last month's NH Chase; raced wide, mid-division, jumped well in main, in touch from ninth, pushed along home turn, stayed on to lead last, found plenty; only 7, so should have a good future in long-distance handicaps.

one of the least exposed, was taking a huge hike in trip but seemingly relished it and showed improved form, arguably doing well to get so close; raced off the pace, met some trouble first, still plenty to do 4 out, headway next, hampered 2 out, finished with a flourish, best of those held up; he should remain a force in good staying handicaps.

Non Runners: TOBY LERONE (IRE), IPSOS DU BERLAIS (FR), GRAND JESTURE (IRE), BOSE IKARD (IRE), USUEL SMURFER (FR). Fences: 23.

Overrounds: Industry SP 136%, Betfair SP 103.9%

An attritional running of Ireland's premier handicap chase, notable for only a third of those that set out finishing the course, a first-fence melee setting the tone, with plenty of the leading fancies among the non-completers; with that backdrop, it's easy to argue the race wasn't so competitive as it might've been, though the fact that each of the first 4 are novices suggests there's definitely some hope for the form; conditions ensured a thorough emphasis on stamina, though the pace was closer to even than strong, and nothing threatened from out the back, the never-nearer third faring best of the hold-up contingent.

THUNDER AND ROSES (IRE) found refitted cheekpieces sparking a return to form and summoned up plenty of improvement to land this valuable prize, showing himself well suited by a marathon trip at the second time of asking, having failed to give his running for whatever reason in last month's NH Chase; raced wide, mid-division, jumped well in main, in touch from ninth, pushed along home turn, stayed on to lead last, found plenty; only 7, so should have a good future in long-distance handicaps.

RULE THE WORLD claimer ridden, had no problem with the longer trip and ran well on handicap chase debut, much closer to his very smart hurdles form than previously over fences, clearly well up to winning races in this sphere; in touch, travelled fluently, ridden when clouted 3 out, every chance still last, kept on.

ALDERWOOD (IRE) surprisingly seemed to get away with the longer trip and returned to form without ever managing to bridge the gap to some rivals with fewer miles on the clock; dropped out, headway under pressure from 4 out, bad mistake 2 out, one paced.

CANTLOW (IRE) in first-time tongue strap, turned in best effort of season without being up to the task, though there'll be far less competitive handicaps for him to contest now his mark has come down; mid-division, not fluent 3 out, in touch eighteenth, ridden 5 out, blundered 2 out, one paced.

MY MURPHY (IRE) in first-time blinkers, shaped as if still in good form; raced wide, mid-division, mistake ninth, went prominent 5 out, effort next, mistake 2 out, not quicken.
