back up in trip and claimer ridden, turned in a high-class effort reverting to handicap company in first-time blinkers, giving best only to a similarly well-treated rival showing improvement; went with zest, disputed lead until fifth, remained prominent, led twelfth, pressed on soon after, ridden from 3 out, headed last, stuck to task despite rider dropping whip at last, pulled clear of remainder; his past issues mean he'll never be one for maximum faith, but he's clearly as good as ever on this evidence.

One of the most prestigious handicap chases of the season in Ireland and a race that ought to prove strong handicap form, the finish fought out by a pair of well-treated sorts, with second-season chaser Invitation Only posting a high-class effort to wear down the rejuvenated runner-up, the pair drawing nicely clear; the pace was fair, though the tempo lifted when Alpha des Obeaux took over on the final circuit and it proved difficult for some of those held up to get involved.

INVITATION ONLY (IRE) well backed, showed improved form and landed a valuable prize on handicap chase debut, digging deep into his stamina reserves to overhaul the rejuvenated winner; never far away, jumped well in main, travelled well, switched entering straight, second when untidy 3 out, led last, battled well; it's often a futile endeavour to predict his handler's future plans, but he currently holds entries in both the Ryanair Chase and the Gold Cup at the Cheltenham Festival, with general quotes of around 25-1 for the latter appearing about right at this stage.
