Restless Harry - impressive winner.
Restless Harry confirmed his fine effort in last month's Challow Hurdle was no fluke with an impressive display in the Neptune Investment Management Novices' Hurdle under Henry Oliver.
Robin Dickin's six-year-old was beaten just half a length when a 40-1 shot for Newbury's Grade One on his latest start and was sent off at 7-2 for this event.
He was always travelling strongly at the head of affairs and although the unbeaten General Miller and the highly-regarded Royal Charm came to challenge turning for home, Restless Harry stayed on strongly up the straight to score by eight lengths from the former.
Oliver said: "He's a lovely little horse. He's still quite green but he's improving and going from strength to strength.
"He's so gutsy from the front and I think he's going to be a different horse again next year.
"He was 40-1 for his last run but he was very impressive at Towcester the time before and we thought we'd have a go and it has paid dividends today so I'm thrilled to bits."
Dickin said: "I know it sounds bullish but I don't think this is his best distance and I'm sure he'd keep galloping the same over three miles.
"He'll have a break when he'll be turned out with 14 other horses in a very big field, accompanied by a herd of fallow deer.
"His next race will be the three-mile hurdle just before the Gold Cup (Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle)."
Sky Bet make him a 6-1 chance for the Festival race.
The runner-up's trainer Nicky Henderson said: "Fair play to the winner and it looks like the Challow is the form race.
"We've got to juggle a few horses around now and this one might not be wanting to come to the Festival for another year, but we'll play it by ear."
