Add 11 yards. This featured some in-form handicappers and rates as solid form. The winner made it three wins on the bounce, despite jumping repeatedly right-handed.
is improving at a rapid rate over fences and dug deep after the last to complete his hat-trick. Beaten only once in four chase starts, he again showed a tendency to jump right throughout, but impressed with his attitude and always looked like holding the runner-up.
