Charbel could hardly have been more impressive at Huntingdon

Noel Fehily and Charbel moved to the front at the fifth and, despite jumping left on occasion, were always in command as the penalty carried by God's Own proved too much to overcome.

God's Own ran well for second ahead of the staying-on Tea For Two, but this was all about Charbel, who paid a handsome compliment to King George contender Politologue

"I was really impressed with him, just delighted. I'm sorry David Bass couldn't ride him," said winning trainer Kim Bailey.

"I'm thrilled. I've always wanted to win the Peterborough Chase and it's great to have done it with him.

"No plans, but I think we'll keep him to flat tracks now. I think he's shown today that flat tracks suit him."

Fehily was doubling up after earlier steering Bags Groove to victory in the Highflyer Bloodstock Novices' Chase for trainer Harry Fry.

Bass missed the ride on Charbel after being concussed in a fall from Mon Palois at Wetherby on Saturday, but could return to action next weekend.

Bailey added: "He's fine. He's going to have a concussion test next week and hopefully he'll be back for the weekend."

Coral cut Charbel to 12/1 for the Ryanair Chase, where he could potentially lock horns with Min - winner of the John Durkan Chase in Ireland on Sunday.
