According To Pete (right): Gutsy effort in the mud

According To Pete was a clear-cut winner of the Peter Marsh Chase at Haydock under Harry Haynes.

The 11yo was following up his victory on Boxing Day at Wetherby and was always prominent as The Sawyer set a decent pace up front in very testing conditions.

The Sawyer cried enough down the back straight and it was left to According To Pete, Pearlysteps and Consigliere as they had the race to themselves from the home turn.

The winner always had the advantage by a couple of lengths and a safe jump at the last secured the prize by three and a half lengths.

Pearlysteps kept on best up the run-in for second with Consigliere a gallant third.

Haynes said: "He jumped brilliantly and never put a foot wrong.

"He's finished very tired - he walked home after the last - but he had enough in him to keep going."
