produced a career best back at the sort of trip that had seen him do better than all bar a thriving Christian Williams-trained pair in last season's Scottish National, not putting a foot wrong as he made negotiating 25 fences seem all rather routine; jumped soundly waited with, steady headway before 5 out, chased leader 3 out, produced to lead next, threatened briefly flat, found extra; he'll likely have Ayr in his diary again next if over this (treated for heat stress post-race) and will go there better than he was in 2022.

improved further following a 6 lb rise for Carlisle, putting in a mammoth effort having found himself last soon after the start, the vast hike in trip proving inspired for all he couldn't get to a winner who'd enjoyed a better run at things and was having only his second go in a marathon handicap; in rear, pushed along briefly early, progress from halfway, closing when hit 3 out, rallied well, chased leader before last and continued to stay on all the while; he, too, would have to be of interest in the Scottish National, though there's a bit more recovery time before the bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown.

proved he still has plenty to offer at his admittedly reduced level for the second time in his last 3 starts, probably just not a consistently stout finisher these days but almost certainly in the firing line further out than ideal this time, either way shaping much better than the distance beaten might suggest; tracked pace out wide, pressed leader before 5 out, jumped on next, headed 2 out, tied up after taking last only 4 lengths behind runner-up.

shaped much better than the bare result, probably unsuited by the increase in trip above all (finished with heat stress), though it says plenty for his ability that he could even threaten to play a part before the trip seemed to tell considering his jumping buckled under too much pressure in this much more competitive environment; soon behind, jumped sketchily, took closer order early final circuit, in touch briefly twentieth, not sustain effort; he's yet to peak and is well worth another chance under different circumstances despite his tendency to hit a couple.

The ground wasn't so bad as it can be for the Midlands National, as supported by the third quickest time for the race in the last decade, though the brisk gallop set by The Two Amigos still put enough pressure on jumping and stamina to ensure only the first 3 still had a chance by the second last after plenty more than that had been grouped together approaching the straight, the trio comprising chasers at different stages in their career in marathon handicaps, a newcomer and veteran of them in second and third respectively behind a winner having only his second crack at such a race.

MAJOR DUNDEE (IRE) produced a career best back at the sort of trip that had seen him do better than all bar a thriving Christian Williams-trained pair in last season's Scottish National, not putting a foot wrong as he made negotiating 25 fences seem all rather routine; jumped soundly waited with, steady headway before 5 out, chased leader 3 out, produced to lead next, threatened briefly flat, found extra; he'll likely have Ayr in his diary again next if over this (treated for heat stress post-race) and will go there better than he was in 2022.
