in first-time hood, resumed winning ways to continue his remarkable rise up through the chasing ranks, not needing to improve much to go one better than in the JN Wine, which leaves him with a bit to find still to be considered in the same bracket as the likes of Might Bite and Sizing John, but has time on his side, only rising 7 after all; mid-division, steady headway before 3 out, stumbled between 3 out and 2 out, produced to lead, driven out; if he runs again before Cheltenham it will reportedly be in the Irish Gold Cup back here in February, but connections also have Disko for that race.

seemed to excel himself back up in trip/grade, the return to a sounder surface clearly a help but his proximity casts some doubt on the overall value of the form, although, on the plus side, has more options with regards trip now; made running, jumped much better than last time, headed fifth, remained prominent, led again 5 out, collared last, kept on (saw things out remarkably well in the circumstances); remains to be seen if able to back this up.

shaped much better than the distance beaten suggests after 9 months off, still a close third turning for home after going with typical exuberance at the head of affairs, his jumping having held up well for the most part, but ultimately left the impression that he will prove best at short of 3m; chased leaders, tanked along, pulled way to front fifth, led until blundered 5 out, remained prominent, faded early in straight, finished tired, not knocked about; well worth another chance.

All 12 ran. Fences: 16.

Winning Owner: Gigginstown House Stud

Time: 6m 8.9s Closing Sectional: (4.40f): 66.30s (102.0%)

Overrounds: Industry SP 124%, Betfair SP 101.4%

A change of name for this Grade 1 chase, but the outcome was the same, one carrying the Gigginstown colours coming out on top for the fourth year in a row, Road To Respect leading home a 1-2-3 for the battalion in maroon and white who also had the fifth and sixth for good measure; it wasn't the contest that many were expecting, however, with Sizing John and Djakadam clearly not 100% and Yorkhill failing to stay after forcing the pace, so it was probably no more than an average renewal.
