is very much on the up for this stable and produced a second successive career best to land this big prize, suited by going up to 3m and showing form that puts him in the top-class bracket, fully entitled to have a crack at the Gold Cup next for all that'll take even more progress, though the Ryanair is also an option; mid-division, travelled fluently, not fluent sixth but jumped well otherwise, in touch eleventh, went second 2 out, jumped on last, driven out.

back in a tongue strap after 11 weeks off, was well at home tackling Grade 1 company for the first time and proved better than ever; dropped out, jumped well, travelled strongly, crept closer from tenth, went third home turn, effort on inner last, stuck to task; his trainer suggested the Ryanair is his preferred Cheltenham option and the double-figure odds available about him for that race make a bit of appeal as he's still improving and won't be found wanting for pace back down in trip.

strong in the betting, probably ran about as well as he had in the Lexus behind a pair less exposed under the conditions, just found wanting for a late change of gear, not for the first time at this level; pressed leader, jumped well, disputed lead from fourth, went on 3 out, pushed along before last, headed there, one paced; he'll reportedly head to the Gold Cup, where he'll probably need a slog to improve on last year's third, en route to his principal target the Grand National.

winner of this race in each of the last 2 seasons, wasn't discredited but never looked like making it 3 in a row, the leaders not coming back in a race that wasn't the same gruelling test as the one he won here in 2016; held up, pushed along after 4 out, chased leaders before last, one paced; he isn't in the Gold Cup and it seems that the Grand National is his big spring target - the extra distance of that race promises to suit and he'd be an interesting runner, depending on what the BHA handicapper does.

in first-time cheekpieces, was back to being ridden positively but ran worse than he had in the Lexus and has struggled to recapture his form since falling at Punchestown in the spring; made running, joined fourth, not fluent sixth, not fluent 3 out, left behind gradually.

was in the process of running his best race over fences when departing late on, less than a length down and going about as well as the first 2 at the time of his fall, and this suggests he might still have it in him to prove as good over fences as he was over hurdles, especially as his jumping was good on the whole, gelling well with a new rider; mid-division, travelled smoothly, took closer order tenth, close up home turn, yet to be asked for full effort when unseated rider last (didn't make much of a mistake but crumpled on landing)

Non Runners: ZABANA (IRE). Fences: 17.

Winning Owner: Ann & Alan Potts Partnership

Time: 6m 24.6s Closing Sectional: (4.40f): 63.60s (109.6%)

A competitive and up-to-scratch renewal of this premier Grade 1, even in the absence of most of the principals from the Lexus, and it made for a terrific spectacle with 5 of the 6 still standing after 2 out in with a chance at the last, the first 2 value for efforts bordering on top-class as they asserted on the run-in; conditions ensured stamina didn't go untested but it wasn't a flat-out gallop and it's probably no coincidence that the winner and second have recent form over shorter, compared to the grinders in third and fourth.
