given a short break, showed improved form to take this prestigious prize on just her eighth start over hurdles, travelling strongly throughout, the manner of victory suggesting there is more to come; mid-division, tanked along, headway approaching 4 out, produced to lead approaching last, slightly slow there, handing the runner-up another chance, hung left run-in, but kept going well with the aid of the rail; won't be short of options in her bid to follow up, a rise in the weights potentially underestimating her rate of progress, whilst gaining further black type against her own sex (already a Grade 3 winner as a novice) is well within reach.

took a step forward, acquitting himself admirably, a novice on only his fifth hurdles outing; mid-division, travelled smoothly, crept closer from fourth, led 2 out, headed approaching last but keeping on when hampered by winner run-in; is unlikely to be rated high enough to get into the handicaps at Cheltenham, but he is going the right way and should find plenty of opportunities at home.

back over hurdles/refitted with a hood, ran right up to his best, finishing to good effect under top weight; in rear, headway approaching 2 out, forced to switch approaching last, stayed on; is 7 lb higher than when landing the County Hurdle in 2013 but is clearly still on a competitive mark and, with his jumping often an issue over fences, it will be interesting to see how connections campaign him close to hand.

Non Runners: CAPTAIN CARLETON (IRE). Hurdles: 8.

Winning Owner: Barrywhite Partnership

Time: 3m 55.1s

The latest renewal of this long-established handicap was perhaps a little lacking in quality, top weight Ted Veale 9 lb below the potential ceiling, but it was typically competitive and saw a pair of lightly-raced hurdlers coming to the fore, Katie T having to survive a stewards inquiry after hampering the second on the run-in, though it was hard to argue it impacted upon the result, the winning margin 3 lengths; the pace was fair.

KATIE T (IRE) given a short break, showed improved form to take this prestigious prize on just her eighth start over hurdles, travelling strongly throughout, the manner of victory suggesting there is more to come; mid-division, tanked along, headway approaching 4 out, produced to lead approaching last, slightly slow there, handing the runner-up another chance, hung left run-in, but kept going well with the aid of the rail; won't be short of options in her bid to follow up, a rise in the weights potentially underestimating her rate of progress, whilst gaining further black type against her own sex (already a Grade 3 winner as a novice) is well within reach.
