made particular amends for his luckless first crack at this as he made his third go in the race a winning one from the same mark as in the Scottish National, in the process trumping even Hot Weld's exploits of an Ayr/Sandown double a week apart in 2007 considering Kitty's Light had also taken the Eider prior to that, an extraordinary feat that highlighted the rare blend of attributes that have made him such a fixture in these races, still aged only 7; returning cheekpieces do seem to have helped, specifically with his jumping, as there weren't any mistakes of note this time as he made his way into an ominous position before the third last, briefly working for room on the home turn but soon bursting through rivals to chase the leader 2 out and getting to him on landing at the last, a feeling of the inevitable about the entire latter stages, much as there had been at Ayr and with Corach Rambler from so far out in the biggest long-distance chase of them all earlier in the month.

Non Runners: ORGANDI (FR), MUCHO MAS (IRE). Fences: 24.

Winning Owner: R J Bedford & All Stars Sports Racing

Overrounds: Industry SP 126%, Betfair SP 101.7%

Even the presence of Frodon - carrying at least 11 lb more than the rest from a BHA mark of 160 - couldn't disguise a dip in strength to the last of the thick-and-fast sequence of major marathon handicap chases that close the campaign, the majority successful at least once this season but up plenty in the weights as a consequence and a quarter of the field out of the weights, with only a couple representing the novices, a group that had produced the first past the post in the previous 4 editions, highlighted by Hewick - a winner of the Oaksey Chase later on this card - in 2022; that said, the achievement of Kitty's Light shouldn't be taken lightly, fine training and riding along with the winner's stellar resolution carrying him to an unprecedented treble of races covering a total distance of roughly 11¾m.

KITTY'S LIGHT made particular amends for his luckless first crack at this as he made his third go in the race a winning one from the same mark as in the Scottish National, in the process trumping even Hot Weld's exploits of an Ayr/Sandown double a week apart in 2007 considering Kitty's Light had also taken the Eider prior to that, an extraordinary feat that highlighted the rare blend of attributes that have made him such a fixture in these races, still aged only 7; returning cheekpieces do seem to have helped, specifically with his jumping, as there weren't any mistakes of note this time as he made his way into an ominous position before the third last, briefly working for room on the home turn but soon bursting through rivals to chase the leader 2 out and getting to him on landing at the last, a feeling of the inevitable about the entire latter stages, much as there had been at Ayr and with Corach Rambler from so far out in the biggest long-distance chase of them all earlier in the month.

CERTAINLY RED was probably finally undone by his latest rise in the weights back over fences from 7 lb higher than at Wincanton; raced off the pace, shaken up back straight, rallied from 4 out, merely plugged on.
