bounced back from a pair of falls in the best possible fashion, avoiding mistakes and relishing his first full crack at a marathon trip after his Eider spill, coaxed to a career-best effort by a trainer making quite the name for himself when it comes to improving new recruits and revitalising others; mid-division, travelled well, took closer order thirteenth, produced 3 out, went on approaching last, slow there, lost momentum briefly, driven run-in, forged clear when it mattered.

stepped up significantly on her reappearance another 4 months on, going down in gallant fashion in a major race during this week for the second year in a row (touched off by Rathvinden in National Hunt Chase in 2018), hardly a blemish on the chasing record of a most likeable mare; pressed leader, led before thirteenth, joined briefly fifteenth, headed seventeenth, edged ahead again 4 out, joined again next, upsides until last, held only final 50 yds; she may need some recovery time but is bordering on the standard required to compete in open graded company with the aid of her allowance, never mind that needed to land other good races against her own sex.

likely remains in form for all another marathon handicap eluded him, finishing with far more purpose than most, though that probably told the tale of a loss of interest more than anything, perhaps caused by a couple of errors; mid-division, lost ground fourteenth, clouted next, pushed along after eighteenth, blundered again 5 out, labouring 3 out, well off pace still next (fully 30 lengths behind front pair), finished well all too late.

has a strike-rate over fences that does him a disservice, and it's to be hoped his crunching late fall doesn't leave a lasting mark, campaigning him over marathon distances surely done and dusted following this experience, after shaping as well as any for a long way after 10 weeks off; patiently ridden, went with enthusiasm, headway to lead seventeenth, headed 4 out, faltered next, legless when fell last; it goes without saying he won't want turning out quickly but there's a handicap up to 3½m on bad ground with his name all over it further down the line.

had stamina to prove upped markedly in distance but a series of errors proved just as costly, lasting a remarkably long time on the bridle under the circumstances, as encouraging a performance for next time as any produced by the many non-completers; mid-field, made mistakes, travelled better than most, in touch still home turn, weakened from 4 out.

was 2 lb out of the handicap back over fences but the extreme stamina test was the bigger problem, actually giving more cause for encouragement than for a while until giving way at the much longer distance; dropped out, crept closer 5 out, soon done with 3 out, tailed off when stopped to nothing and pulled up quickly last; he's potentially well handicapped now.

Winning Owner: All Stars Sports Racing & J Davies

Time: 9m 39.7s Closing Sectional: (2.60f): 45.30s (97.7%)

In a week in which the sport came under fire for an attritional National Hunt Chase, this year's Midlands National was hardly the salve it needed, a near 10-minute slog on heavy ground that had exhausted most by the time the front pair began their scrap for the line, only 4 others - of the 20 that had started out - managing to complete the course, one silver lining Back To The Thatch getting up from a last-fence fall that had left him winded for some time.

POTTERS CORNER (IRE) bounced back from a pair of falls in the best possible fashion, avoiding mistakes and relishing his first full crack at a marathon trip after his Eider spill, coaxed to a career-best effort by a trainer making quite the name for himself when it comes to improving new recruits and revitalising others; mid-division, travelled well, took closer order thirteenth, produced 3 out, went on approaching last, slow there, lost momentum briefly, driven run-in, forged clear when it mattered.
