Quantitativeeasing: Given scare at Market Rasen

Quantitativeeasing (2-11 favourite) was given a scare in the Molson Coors One Stop Shop Novices' Chase at Market Rasen.

Rated as highly as 139 over hurdles, the JP McManus-owned chestnut was not spectacular in this three-runner affair, but may well have bumped into a willing foe in Fin Vin De Leu.

That rival briefly led after the second-last, but Tony McCoy always had matters in hand and stretched clear by a length and a quarter.

Tom Symonds, assistant to winning trainer Nicky Henderson, said: "He probably didn't want to be leading for so long, but has come on a lot for his runs at Fontwell and Cheltenham.

"He's now eligible for handicaps so we can make plans for Cheltenham, if that's what Nicky chooses to do."

McCoy was a shade less enthusiastic about his Festival claims, adding: "I don't know whether he's a Cheltenham horse."
