Venetia Williams' Royale Pagaille, owned by Susannah Ricci, impressed at Kempton over Christmas when cruising to a handicap chase victory off a mark of 140, but he was even more taking back at Haydock off a rating of 156 - fuelling hopes of Cheltenham Festival success.

He's got a plethora of options at the Festival as he's still a novice, bringing what was the RSA Chase and National Hunt Chase into play, while he has a Gold Cup entry as well.

The owners have Monkfish for the Festival Novices' Chase, though, further clouding the picture, but wherever he goes he'll be a player after this resounding 16-length victory.

Winning jockey Tom Scudamore was effusive in his praise afterwards, saying: "Venetia just said find your way early on and it was just an absolute pleasure.

"He jumped from fence to fence and it was a great thrill. I was able to trust him all the way around, he was very straightforward, I was just a passenger.

"He's very neat and tidy and has scope. On today's performance the world's his oyster."
