was well suited by the longest trip he's ever tackled and proved at least as good as ever to bag this valuable prize; patiently ridden, jumped well, in touch eighteenth, pecked next, outpaced home turn, rallied 3 out, chased leader last, found plenty to lead final 50 yds; an assured jumper, he'll be best kept to these sorts of races from now on.

is a likeable stayer and ran every bit as well as when winning the Eider, testament to his constitution that he could win and finish second in 2 of the season's most gruelling races just 3 weeks apart, going down only to a rival who had a 13 lb pull in the weights for a three-and-a-half-length beating from when the pair met at Haydock in November; held up, jumped well, headway 3 out, led under pressure 3 out, tackled last, kept on well, collared final 50 yds.

stayed the marathon trip fine and ran about as well as he ever has despite the least fluent round of jumping of all the principals - if he can improve that part of his game then he's well up to winning a race like this; dropped out, mistake seventh, not fluent next, mistake fifteenth, headway after 5 out, went second 2 out, one paced approaching last.

Time: 9m 12.5s Closing Sectional: (2.60f): 46.30s (92.8%)

Overrounds: Industry SP 129%, Betfair SP 98.4%

A maximum field of 20 for this marathon handicap, half of whom managed to finish, and with 7 of that number running at least respectably the form looks about as solid as it ever gets for a Midlands National; the pace was sound and the first 3 all bided their time until the end of the back straight on the final circuit.
