Silviniaco Conti: Impressed with his jumping
Silviniaco Conti won the Grade Two totetentofollow.co.uk Rising Stars Novices' Chase at Wincanton in fine style under Daryl Jacob.
Sent off the 8/11 favourite, Paul Nicholls' five-year-old jumped well in behind the sound pace set by Kilcrea Kim before taking it up with a circuit to go.
A big jump at the third last saw the gelding stride six lengths clear as his rivals began to toil, with Kilcrea Kim pulled up before two out having been unable to keep tabs on the eventual winner.
Allowed to stride on following a clever jump at the last, Silviniaco Conti won by 25 lengths from Mad Moose, the only other to finish, and has been cut to 10/1 by Betfred and Stan James for the RSA Chase.
