Well Refreshed

The 9-2 favourite was ridden by the trainer's son Josh, who bided his time on the Sussex National scorer as last year's winner Giles Cross, Teaforthree and Rigadin De Beauchene set the pace.

Well Refreshed was brought into contention in the straight and went on two out before making a big hole in the final fence. He lost no momentum, however, and galloped away to beat Rigadin de Beauchene by 10 lengths. Welsh National hero Monbeg Dude stayed on late to claim third, nine lengths away.

Moore jnr told Channel 4 Racing: "I should have known better at the last, but we got away with it. He's been nicely handicapped all season. He's a progressive horse and I hope he can keep going that way.

"It's great for the yard to have two big winners (also Vino Griego at Ascot) and we were keen on them both, especially this lad, who has been mapped out for this race.

"He's not been a natural jumper. He's a bit gangly and probably has more ribs than he should, but he has improved and it's just about trying to get him into a rhythm.

"It's a nice prize to win today. I was quite confident turning into the straight with the way he was travelling, and thankfully we got away with it at the last!

"I don't know where he'll go next, but he's already done better than we could ever have imagined. When he won his first race of the season it was a 0-100 race at Fontwell and we'd have honestly been happy just to see him get round that day.

"It's my biggest winner and a great day for all the team at home."
