with just 6 previous starts over fences to his name, was one of the least exposed in the line-up and stepped forward significantly after his return over hurdles to land this very valuable prize under a good conditional, successful now on his last 3 starts in handicap chases; handy, not always fluent, pressed leader sixteenth, pressed on after next, kept on well, 3 lengths clear run-in, closed down near finish, always holding on; he's open to further improvement, further top-end handicaps and perhaps even good conditions races likely to be on the agenda.

Overrounds: Industry SP 140%, Betfair SP 105%

The first maximum field for the Ladbrokes Trophy, formerly the Hennessy, since Be My Royal passed the post first ahead of Gingembre in 2002, that itself the largest field in 40 years, and, while this might have lacked, say, a top novice from last season or a Gold Cup-placed runner, it had a good mix of smart handicappers and less-exposed second-season chasers, as so often in this race one of the latter coming to the fore, his win one of authority, though there were plenty of others that shaped with encouragement, the form looking every bit as strong as might be expected for a field of this size and quality; the gallop was a good one, jumping, stamina and heart all fairly tested.

DE RASHER COUNTER with just 6 previous starts over fences to his name, was one of the least exposed in the line-up and stepped forward significantly after his return over hurdles to land this very valuable prize under a good conditional, successful now on his last 3 starts in handicap chases; handy, not always fluent, pressed leader sixteenth, pressed on after next, kept on well, 3 lengths clear run-in, closed down near finish, always holding on; he's open to further improvement, further top-end handicaps and perhaps even good conditions races likely to be on the agenda.

THE CONDITIONAL (IRE) continued his excellent start for this yard with a career best, impressing particularly with the way he travelled for so long, for most of the race still looking a fair way ahead of his mark; handy, tanked along, chased leader early in straight, ridden 2 out, edged left, blundered last, rallied well near finish.

ELEGANT ESCAPE (IRE) in first-time blinkers, proved at least as good as ever in being placed in this for the second year running, as usual finishing strongly, though under a more patient ride than usual; held up, still plenty to do when pushed along sixteenth, headway approaching 2 out, stayed on strongly from last, never nearer; he went on to win the Welsh National after finishing second in this last winter and may well head to Chepstow again, the return to a marathon trip sure to suit, though he is also entered in the King George, a less obvious option.

BEWARE THE BEAR (IRE) after 7 months off, proved better than ever in taking fourth for the second year running (though beaten a lot further in 2018), in one of his more cooperative moods, not sure to be the same next time; raced off the pace, pushed along fifteenth, mistake next, ridden after, headway under pressure before 4 out, not quicken between last 2, stayed on.

DINGO DOLLAR (IRE) back in headgear and back over fences for a race in which he finished third last season, ran creditably, confirming the promise of his return, if anything better than the result, having been forcing the pace from the off; led until seventeenth, ridden after, not quicken 3 out; likely to give a good account again.

MISTER MALARKY in first-time cheekpieces, seemed to be sharpened up considerably by those and took a significant step forward; mid-division, travelled well, headway before seventeenth, chased leaders 3 out, no extra approaching last; he was probably just not quite good enough rather than beaten through stamina, and has an entry over even further in the Welsh National.

WALT (IRE) had plenty on under a penalty for winning a much weaker race at Taunton and, although strictly below form, he shaped better than the bare result, looking not to stay the longer trip; mid-division, took keen hold, went prominent early final circuit, pushed along entering straight, weakened before 2 out.

DAKLONDIKE (IRE) had shaped well over hurdles on similar ground on his return, but he's too much of a sluggard to be seen at his best under such conditions in a race this competitive; in rear, some headway early final circuit, pushed along fourteenth, left behind seventeenth.
