proved better than ever, well suited by a strongly-run race on good ground trying 3m for the first time; patiently ridden, travelled well, headway after 4 out, led under pressure 2 out, clear last, reduced advantage close home, ridden out; he's likely to be back in pattern company next, with a Grade 1 at Aintree on the agenda, that surely bound to require more.

the youngest in the field, bounced back to form with blinkers on and and under a change of rider, likely to have been given an even more attacking ride had he not missed out the first, proving himself conclusively at the trip; close up when clouted first, generally not that fluent, chased leaders until fifth, took closer order again back straight, sent on thirteenth, ridden straight, headed 2 out, not quicken, rallied run-in; presumably the 3m handicap on Grand National day or even the Gold Cup at Sandown could be spring options for him.

running in the race for the fourth time (runner-up in 2017 and 2019), was far from disgraced given how involved he was with the strong pace, less of a stayer than the third and unable to see the race out quite so well after the pair had matched strides for most of the way behind the leader; chased leader, travelled well, ridden after 4 out, weakened next.

The biggest field since 2009 for a high-end and very competitive handicap on paper, the majority fully exposed, including quite a few regulars in the race, but plenty in good form and 5 running off BHA marks above 150; not many got involved off a furious pace, however, the charge to the first like a mini-Grand National, Mellow Ben forcing it, closely pursued by Double Shuffle and Mister Malarky, the trio well clear mid-race, the winner, trying 3m for the first time, clearly well suited by the way things unfolded and putting up one of the best performances in the race in recent years, winning for a stable that has a fine record in the race, Nacarat and Double Shuffle standing dishes in the contest.

CLONDAW CASTLE (IRE) proved better than ever, well suited by a strongly-run race on good ground trying 3m for the first time; patiently ridden, travelled well, headway after 4 out, led under pressure 2 out, clear last, reduced advantage close home, ridden out; he's likely to be back in pattern company next, with a Grade 1 at Aintree on the agenda, that surely bound to require more.
