provided a trainer with few peers when it comes to peaking in the autumn with a sixth Charlie Hall, stepping out of handicap company for the first time since his novice campaign but not having to better his Chepstow form by as much as might normally be expected, testament to a below-par renewal in which everything else was reappearing and a few made mistakes; soon pressing the leader, Ballyoptic's jumping again stood up better than it used to (awkward fifth) and, having been outpaced briefly on the home turn, he rallied to edge ahead briefly before 4 out and again crossing the second last, responding well from there even after going right at the last; he's fallen on both previous outings over the National fences but, seemingly a safer conveyance now, appeals as a more suitable type for a campaign geared around that spring target rather than a Gold Cup that will surely prove way beyond him in anything other than a bog.

returned this season as he signed off his last 7 months earlier, running an increasingly typical race, combining lack of speed with laziness, only races over extreme distances likely to make him a fair betting proposition these days, even this not enough of a slog; mid-division, pecked fourth, clouted twelfth, outpaced after 5 out, carried head bit awkwardly, rallied from 3 out, went second run-in.

shaped as if back as good as ever after 8 months off, going like the best horse at the weights until the return to 3m - at least on such testing ground - stretched his stamina; in touch on the inner for most of the way, he was sensibly switched to what appeared less-poached ground before 5 out and remained out wide as he cruised into the lead before 4 out, unable to get away though and collared at the second last before he tied up on the run-in; he probably wouldn't want turning out quickly but something like the Ascot Chase later this season has his name written all over it, best forgiven his flop in that in 2018 given his form either side.

came up some way short in his bid to defend his crown, faced with a deeper field this time around but clearly underperforming above all after 6 months off, age and a number of tough races perhaps finally telling on him; tracked pace, struggling quickly end of back straight, no threat from 4 out.

won first time out last season but shaped as if needing the run this time around back from 7 months off, giving encouragement with a zestful display in front for a long way for all he dropped away quite tamely once headed before 4 out; his next run should confirm whether or not mere lack of fitness was to blame.

produced a rare below-par effort after 7 months off but excuses could easily be found, puzzlingly ridden with more patience than seems to suit best (jumping seemed to suffer for one, making worst of 4 mistakes at the twelfth) and also sticking to seemingly the worst of the ground on the inner, a rapid move into third before the straight proving short-lived; she'll leave this behind next time.

gave plenty of cause for optimism until crashing out at the eleventh returning from 7 months off, taken wide and making good progress into a share of third at the time of her departure; 3-4 as a novice, she remains a very smart prospect, potentially one of the best mares over fences in training.

Time: 6m 32.3s Closing Sectional: (2.25f): 38.00s (96.0%)

Last year's Charlie Hall winner could muster only fourth this time around but that isn't to suggest this was anything other than a substandard renewal, certainly compared to those recent editions won by such as Cue Card and Bristol de Mai, stamina, fitness and jumping counting for at least as much as ability in a well-run race, Ballyoptic the only one with a run under his belt so far this autumn; not for the only time at the meeting, it might have been an advantage to take a path away from the churned-up rail.
