Mossley (L): Winning chase debut

The Michael Buckley-owned Mossley survived two bad jumping errors on his chasing debut to become Nicky Henderson's seventh winner of the day.

Amazingly, the five-year-old was the Seven Barrows handler's seventh winner of the afternoon, from just seven runners saddled, with the accumulator paying over 66/1 at starting prices.

The 1/8 favourite gave backers two notable scares in the Starlight Charity Children's Foundation Beginners' Chase - at the fifth last and third-last fences - but a good jump at the last under Barry Geraghty sealed the historic victory.

"I don't know if I've had seven, I remember having six one Boxing Day or the day after, but we haven't had seven out of seven, that I can be fairly sure of," Henderson said.

"I think Mossley slightly went to sleep, he made one mistake, but Barry said he winged the last two."

Runner-up Canni Thinkar ran a blinder in second, making the favourite pull out all the stops with Gemma Gracey-Davison giving the front-runner a great ride from the front.

Alison Batchelor's Try Catch Me finished third under Mark Quinlan.

Following the victory of Mossley at Kempton, Boylesports have left him unchanged at 20/1 for the 2012 RSA Chase.
