Paul Nicholls' charge was following in the hoofprints of the likes of Thyme Hill, Champ and Denman by landing the Grade One contest and he began to pour on the pressure turning for home.

Nothing could land a blow to the 5/2 joint-favourite who hit the line hard under Harry Cobden, ten lengths clear of his fellow market leader Star Gate who got the better of The Glancing Queen in their duel for second.

Coral make the winner a 6/1 chance (from 12/1) for the Ballymore at Cheltenham and 25s from 33s for the Albert Bartlett.
