added another Grade 1 success following on from the Morgiana, this a stronger event in theory but not practice, showing much the best turn of foot in a race in which the main players were a long way below their peak, and he probably didn't need to improve his form to run out a comfortable winner; waited with, not fluent second, crept closer after 2 out, quickened to lead approaching last and scooted clear on the run-in, well on top at the finish; it's hard to say quite where this leaves him with regards the Champion Hurdle, still with a good bit to find in terms of winning the race in all likelihood.

stepped up slightly on his return in the Hatton's Grace and should find this bringing him on again, encountering a couple of bits of interference in the latter stages, and connections will no doubt be encouraged by this as he builds towards a crescendo in the spring, having the option of the Champion as well as the Stayers' Hurdle at Cheltenham this season; led main group, short of room after 2 out as Samcro improved on his outside and was then kept in by Melon early in the straight, running on once in the clear approaching the last without managing to match the winner's turn of foot.

enhanced his form a little, no other pace forcer in the race this time and sticking on creditably once headed, but his third placing is a reflection on the shortcomings of others as much as his own achievement; led, awkward fifth, reduced advantage 2 out, awkward again there, headed early in straight, kept on.

set the standard on his narrow defeat in last season's Champion Hurdle, but he'd missed a couple of potential starting points in the Morgiana and the Hatton's Grace and was easy to back returning from 8 months off, looking rusty and running some way below his best, likely to sharpen up all round for this; mid-field, settled fine but made a pretty bad mistake at the fifth, awkward 2 out, effort entering straight but was squeezed out slightly as the winner leaned across him, couldn't quicken but plugged on to get past Samcro for fourth close home without being knocked about; it's well worth remembering that his 2 best performances have come at the last 2 Cheltenham Festivals and, having been pushed out to as big as 10/1, he makes a fair bit of each-way appeal in a Champion Hurdle market severely lacking in depth.

again well backed, found things going ideally for 85% of the race, jumping slickly and looking like the winner when he moved up to the leader turning for home, but his inability to open up any sort of gap on Tombstone - even repassed by that one soon after the last - suggests he was undone by more than the trip this time; in touch, loomed up after 2 out, not quicken last, tied up and lost fourth close home, beating only the returning Petit Mouchoir; his owner raised the possibility of roughing him off for the season before bringing him back for a novice chase campaign next autumn, though he's surely worth a chance back over further over hurdles first.

back over hurdles for the first time since finishing third in the 2017 Champion Hurdle (in a campaign that saw him win this race), came in for steady support from big prices but was given a considerate reappearance, ridden very differently to usual and clearly thought in need of the run; dropped out, effort when forced wide home turn, ran down the last and never got out of last place but finished on the heels of Melon and Samcro without being given at all a hard time; he should improve plenty from this, be it over hurdles or fences that we next see him.

Winning Owner: Mrs S. Ricci

Time: 3m 55.3s Closing Sectional: (5.75f): 77.50s (109.1%)

Buveur d'Air's shock defeat earlier in the week left the door ever so slightly ajar for something to really put themselves in the Champion Hurdle picture, hopes high among loyal Samcro supporters that he could close the gap ratings-wise with the Champion from his Newcastle drubbing, but his challenge petered out disappointingly and, with the pair returning from breaks clearly below their best, it was left to one firmly up and running for the season to emerge a ready winner, probably not having to advance his form much, if at all, in what has to rank as a substandard renewal of the race; Tombstone raced a little way clear to halfway but didn't set a strong pace, and the fact that he was able to stick on for third despite a couple of mistakes is a further indictment of the form.
