Wayward Prince: Landed the feature
Ian Williams, who won the totesport.com Towton Novices' Chase last year with Weird Al, made it two on the trot in the Grade 2 at Wetherby with Wayward Prince.
The seven-year-old did his RSA Chase prospects no harm at all with a two-length victory over Cape Tribulation.
The runner-up was a winner at this level over timber but though Wayward Prince was off the bridle in the back straight, he always looked likely to land the odds at 5-6 under Dougie Costello.
"That was a case of job done. It was hard work, but he much prefers coming off a strong pace," said Williams.
"You are never going to get that in five-runner races and we will look forward to it at Cheltenham.
"The second is a very good horse on his day and we've given him a bit of weight. He hasn't had the squeeze put on him yet and he'll be cherry ripe for Cheltenham now."
Costello added: "He falls asleep when you try to ride a race on him. He's much better going two gears too fast rather than two gears too slow.
"He has won at Cheltenham before and he stays all day. He'll run very well in March."
However, when asked if Wayward Prince would be his best chance at the big meeting, Costello replied: "No, that would be Midnight Chase in the Gold Cup."
