Henderson - struck with Andytown.

Henderson - struck with Andytown.

Andytown justified favouritism with a runaway win in the RBC Wealth Management Condotional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle at Cheltenham.

Having his second start for Nicky Henderson and sent off the 11/4 market leader, he was travelling strongly down the hill.

Maucaillou was the only other runner on the bridle at the second last but he was soon fighting a losing battle as Felix de Gilles booted Andytown clear soon after.

The jockey spent much of the run-in easing his moutn down with the official winning distance only two-and-a-half lengths having been eight or nine clear shortly after the last.

Maucaillou kept on for second with Tamadot and Lordbridge filling the minor placings. Sky Bet paid out five places with Maraafeq finishing in that spot.

"He finished fourth behind Breedsbreeze in a novice chase at Bangor on his first start for us and that form doesn't look too bad," the winning trainer told Racing UK.

"He got in here back over hurdles off 115 and the owners were down for the weekend so we decided to run him here but the handicapper will have something to say now."
