had appealed as the ideal type for this race as a novice and, back up in trip, overcame the rise in the weights earned by his win at Carlisle (mark went up 7 lb) to produce a high-class staying performance, relishing the extra emphasis on stamina; waited with, mistake thirteenth, headway sixteenth, pushed along after next, led last, stayed on strongly; reportedly likely to be campaigned with the Gold Cup in mind, and has the potential to improve further, though the Grand National makes more obvious appeal as a spring target.

flying too high on occasions last season, proved better than ever after 7 months off, a really attritional race suiting him down to the ground; soon chasing leaders, led fifteenth, headed last, kept on well; probably not the easiest to place, with his mark set to rise still further, though perhaps the Cotswold Chase is a race which would play to his strengths.

added to his really solid record in top handicaps, proving better than ever, giving best only late in the day; handy, pushed along sixteenth, responded well and every chance last, no extra close home; followed a good effort in this race last year with a creditable fifth in the Welsh National and likely to be going for that next, though a first attempt at the Grand National itself may well be on the cards in the spring.

runner-up in the RSA Chase on his final start as a novice, was one of the least exposed and wasn't disgraced upped in trip after 9 months off, perhaps just needing the run faced with a real slog on his return; waited with, headway seventeenth, chased leaders 3 out, no further impression; may yet do better.

less exposed than rest, this just his fourth start over fences, came with a big reputation and had been well backed ante post but looked surprisingly short of peak fitness beforehand, that rather than the markedly longer trip his undoing after 9 months off, shaping for a long way as if he's got a fair bit more to offer as a chaser; mid-field, travelled smoothly, headway seventeenth, ridden home turn, weakened soon after, no chance when bad mistake 2 out; remains open to plenty of improvement over fences.

useful as a novice last season, when successful 3 times, including in the NH Chase, looked in need of the run after 9 months off but shaped as if returning in decent form, likely to give a good account with this behind him; in touch, raced with enthusiasm, mistake seventh, ridden after sixteenth, not quicken 4 out, weakened after next; will be suited by a return to long distances, and could well merit consideration if taking his chance in the Welsh National next month.

smart over hurdles last season after a lengthy absence, was one of the least exposed over fences, with just 3 runs (against just 10 opponents) to his name, but he ran as if amiss after 7 months off, later reported to have bled; in touch, chased leaders halfway, weakened before seventeenth, behind when clambered over 3 out and pulled up; obviously has questions to answer now.

All 19 ran. Fences: 21.

Winning Owner: Mr Trevor Hemmings

Time: 6m 49.45s

A Hennessy lacking a top-class chaser at the head of the weights, but there were plenty of relatively unexposed second-season chasers and solid, established handicappers among the large field assembled, ensuring a competitive if not vintage renewal; it was a more attritional race than is often the case with the Hennessy, half the field pulled up in the latter stages, fitness and stamina very much to the fore after the leaders went off too fast for their own good.

MANY CLOUDS (IRE) had appealed as the ideal type for this race as a novice and, back up in trip, overcame the rise in the weights earned by his win at Carlisle (mark went up 7 lb) to produce a high-class staying performance, relishing the extra emphasis on stamina; waited with, mistake thirteenth, headway sixteenth, pushed along after next, led last, stayed on strongly; reportedly likely to be campaigned with the Gold Cup in mind, and has the potential to improve further, though the Grand National makes more obvious appeal as a spring target.
