very promising in his novice days, showed just what he can do when the mood takes him with a remarkable out-of-the-fire success, some stage for a first handicap win, the return of headgear, first try at a marathon trip and his extremely promising claimer all likely catalysts, a strongly-run race another; raced off the pace, shaken up before 3 out, still plenty to do in ninth on home turn but stayed on strongly from 2 out to lead well inside final 1f, driven out; he didn't relish the National fences on his sole previous try over them, but something like the Welsh National should be right up his street, proven in the mud in his earlier days for all he's been kept away from it since; as a wider point, this valuable prize extended Paul Nicholls' already unassailable lead in the race to be Champion Trainer, the stable's dominance of the big Saturday handicaps one of the stories of the season.

should be suited by long distances and it's likely something other than lack of stamina was to blame for his fading out of things, lightly raced this season but still on the go since November, not to mention positively ridden on the day; either way, he ran better than this bare result might imply, going with zest close up and leading before the tenth only to weaken once headed before 3 out.

All 20 ran. Fences: 24.

Winning Owner: Paul K. Barber & C. G. Roach

Time: 7m 23.7s Closing Sectional: (2.70f): 43.70s (92.9%)

An open renewal of this prestigious closing-day feature, all sorts catered for, from a former Cheltenham Gold Cup winner at one end of the handicap to one of 2 novices in the field at the other, and, whilst it lost no little interest when Grand Jesture was left at the start, there's still real substance to the form, the 5 who pulled clear all having something to recommend them; there was little slacking of the gallop, first Ely Brown/Rocky Creek forcing things before Unioniste took over, the front 2 coming from off the pace.

JUST A PAR (IRE) very promising in his novice days, showed just what he can do when the mood takes him with a remarkable out-of-the-fire success, some stage for a first handicap win, the return of headgear, first try at a marathon trip and his extremely promising claimer all likely catalysts, a strongly-run race another; raced off the pace, shaken up before 3 out, still plenty to do in ninth on home turn but stayed on strongly from 2 out to lead well inside final 1f, driven out; he didn't relish the National fences on his sole previous try over them, but something like the Welsh National should be right up his street, proven in the mud in his earlier days for all he's been kept away from it since; as a wider point, this valuable prize extended Paul Nicholls' already unassailable lead in the race to be Champion Trainer, the stable's dominance of the big Saturday handicaps one of the stories of the season.

PAINT THE CLOUDS couldn't land a gamble 6 weeks on from his Cheltenham third (to On The Fringe) but lost little in defeat returned to a handicap, evidently handed a fair mark, doing enough to prove his stamina for the trip to boot; in touch, went handy thirteenth, led before 3 out, mistake there, headed 2 out, kept on.
