upped in trip, sprang a surprise, seen to advantage under a well-judged ride, though he needed to show determination to fend off numerous challengers after the last, 4 lb out of the weights but not required to improve a huge amount, given how close the finish was; made all, travelled well, ridden before 2 out, all out to hold on; the Becher and the like, with the aim of getting high enough in the weights to run in the Grand National, would seem a likely plan.

had been given a break, off 11 weeks, after failing to find his form in the winter, and bounced back to his best, likely to have prevailed had his finishing effort been better timed; waited with, plenty to do before 3 out, shaken up, kept on well from last, just failed; he's young enough to progress in staying handicaps next season, with an untroubled campaign, helpful that he's effective on heavy ground as well as good.

was off the same mark as at Cheltenham and ran respectably, but this test didn't suit him nearly so well as that one had, despite the 2 being over a similar trip; in rear, not always fluent, soon off bridle, plenty to do 4 out, kept on well approaching last, nearest at the finish.

upped markedly in trip, ran up to his best, despite the run of the race not looking to suit him, taking time to hit full stride and doing his best work at the finish; held up, not always fluent, outpaced after 4 out, kept on well approaching last, nearest at the finish; he needs work on his jumping, but he's clearly a thorough stayer and could land a decent handicap when stamina is at a premium next season.

for a long way looked as if ahead of his mark, still there at the last and likely to have gone very close had he jumped it fluently; prominent, travelled well, ridden before 3 out, every chance when mistake last, one paced run-in; he's one of the more interesting of these for big staying handicaps next season.

in a change of headgear, had been given a chance by the handicapper and for a long way looked as if he was capable of taking advantage, his finishing effort a little lacking, for all that he wasn't beaten that far; held up, travelled well, smooth headway before 3 out, ridden straight, not quicken run-in.

first and second in the last 2 runnings, bouncing back from a miserable run at Aintree to finish runner-up in 2016, couldn't repeat the trick, just as lacklustre here as in the National; raced off the pace, ridden early final circuit, slow sixteenth, lost touch soon after; he's qualified for the veterans final here next January and will surely be targeted at that on his return in the autumn.

All 13 ran. Fences: 24.

Winning Owner: Mr Einsley Harries

Time: 7m 22.5s Closing Sectional: (2.75f): 43.10s (98.2%)

A feature of the jumps season for 60 years, won by some iconic chasers in its time as the Whitbread - Arkle and Desert Orchid most obviously - but never won by one so readily dismissed by the market, the joint-longest priced winners previously sent off at 25/1, and seldom by one of seemingly such relatively limited ability, Henllan Harri inferior even to Jack High, Timeform's previous lowest-rated winner this century; the field lacked both quantity and - not for the first time in recent years - quality, 13 runners the fewest to take part since 2007, top-weight Theatre Guide running off a BHA mark of 152, but the race didn't lack for excitement in the finish, the first 8 horses covered by little more than 2 lengths, the winner given a really well-judged ride, the runner-up less so, both jockeys picking up a 2-day whip ban for excessive use, Jacob on the runner-up also using his whip once after the line; several would have been better served by softer ground and/or a stronger pace, Doing Fine and Rock The Kasbah most obviously, while the winner might not even have been in the field at all had he run at Ludlow earlier in the week, withdrawn there with a vet's certificate due to a foot infection.

HENLLAN HARRI (IRE) upped in trip, sprang a surprise, seen to advantage under a well-judged ride, though he needed to show determination to fend off numerous challengers after the last, 4 lb out of the weights but not required to improve a huge amount, given how close the finish was; made all, travelled well, ridden before 2 out, all out to hold on; the Becher and the like, with the aim of getting high enough in the weights to run in the Grand National, would seem a likely plan.

THEATRE GUIDE (IRE) ran up to his best, staying the trip better than he had the previous year or indeed on heavy going in the Welsh National this winter; held up, travelled well, went handy halfway, ridden straight, every chance last, hung left run-in, ran on.

BENBENS (IRE) made the frame in a second big staying handicap within a week, still a tough and useful chaser despite advancing years; raced off the pace, shaken up twentieth, good progress 3 out, challenged run-in, kept on.

DOING FINE (IRE) was off the same mark as at Cheltenham and ran respectably, but this test didn't suit him nearly so well as that one had, despite the 2 being over a similar trip; in rear, not always fluent, soon off bridle, plenty to do 4 out, kept on well approaching last, nearest at the finish.
