Aegean Dawn: Toys with sole serious rival Mille Chief.
Aegean Dawn continued his sparkling start to the season with victory in the Canaccord Genuity Handicap Hurdle at Ascot on Friday.
Nicky Henderson's charge was so staggeringly impressive at Cheltenham last week he was sent off at 4-11 favourite, as he was unpenalised for his previous success.
He was equally impressive too, toying with last season's classy juvenile Mille Chief.
"To do Mille Chief for toe after the last he must be pretty special," said jockey David Bass.
Henderson added: "He goes up 21lb from Saturday, so he had to run. With that amount in hand, he really had to win.
"The only thing that matters is his chasing career, so it is just a case of tip-toeing through this season and I don't know where we'll go now."
