upped still further in trip, was strong in the betting and looked a long way ahead of his mark, impressing with how he went through the race, despite his jumping being adequate at best, a mistake 2 out nearly costing him before he produced a storming finish under strong driving (rider banned for 4 days for excessive use of whip) to lead close home; patiently ridden, not always fluent, tanked along, smooth headway seventeenth, challenged 3 out, mistake next, ridden after, rallied run-in, found plenty to lead near finish; he's sure to progress further, not long with this yard nor at all exposed at 3m+, graded races surely on the agenda before long, though the Grand National is reportedly his main target.

making his handicap debut over fences under a 4-lb penalty for his reappearance win, produced the best performance in this race since the subsequent Gold Cup winner Bobs Worth beat Tidal Bay in the 2011 running, his performance suggesting he merits serious consideration as a Gold Cup candidate himself, only his age seeming a negative, his second chance over fences coming relatively late; waited with, travelled well, headway sixteenth, led on bridle 3 out, ridden approaching next, clear before last, kept on well, headed close home; sure to continue to give a good account.

The 61st running of this great race, the first not billed as the Hennessy Gold Cup, the old handle likely to linger, though the new sponsors are impossible to mistake for anyone watching the race or viewing a replay, this a vintage running in prospect, with Coneygree heading the weights, the first former Cheltenham Gold Cup winner to run in this since Denman in 2010, those around him at the head of the market looking to make progress early in their first season out of novice company; Coneygree failed to give his running, as did the well-backed American, but it was 2 of the other market leaders, both out of novice company this season, who fought out the finish, Total Recall a first Irish-trained winner - not counting the subsequently disqualified Be My Royal - since Bright Highway in 1980, the runner-up Whisper, conceding 14 lb to the winner, emerging with plenty of credit, too; the race was well run - perhaps overly so - and the ground less testing than ideal for some, though the way the first 2 travelled suggested they were full value for their efforts.

TOTAL RECALL (IRE) upped still further in trip, was strong in the betting and looked a long way ahead of his mark, impressing with how he went through the race, despite his jumping being adequate at best, a mistake 2 out nearly costing him before he produced a storming finish under strong driving (rider banned for 4 days for excessive use of whip) to lead close home; patiently ridden, not always fluent, tanked along, smooth headway seventeenth, challenged 3 out, mistake next, ridden after, rallied run-in, found plenty to lead near finish; he's sure to progress further, not long with this yard nor at all exposed at 3m+, graded races surely on the agenda before long, though the Grand National is reportedly his main target.
