Pipe - trains The Package.
The Package showed that he could be a Grand National horse of the future when landing what has become a recognised trial for that great race, the Neptune Investment Management Handicap Chase.
Given a classic waiting ride by Timmy Murphy, the well-backed 6-1 chance was always travelling kindly as Ashley Brook made the best of his way home coming down the hill.
The latter was stopped in his tracks by a bad mistake three out and soon after The Package was in control as The Tother One emerged as a threat.
The Package was always holding his pursuer, the 3-1 favourite, and won by a length.
Winning trainer David Pipe was grounded by the fog which ensured his helicopter never left Pond House, but owner David Johnson was on hand to greet the winner.
Johnson said: "He was spotted by the late Tom Costello whose memory lives on and we always felt there was a big race in him.
"We got three pounds for the three lengths he was beaten at Wincanton, so the form has worked out well.
"He was foot perfect, apart from a slight mistake at the second, and these days he's settling and jumping better.
"I guess he could be a National horse but more likely for 2011, as I still have Comply Or Die."
