No Planning meets the final fence on a better stride to secure success under Ryan Mania

No Planning survived a late gaffe to claim the £50,000 Bet At corbettsports.com Levy Board Handicap Chase at Haydock.

Sue Smith's inmate appeared in the clear two fences from home after game front-runner Bold Chief, the 4-1 favourite, wilted along the straight.

But Ryan Mania's partner met the penultimate obstacle all wrong, which gave runner-up Shotavodka a glimmer of a chance.

No Planning (16/1) swiftly regained momentum, though, and extended his advantage to three lengths at the line.

Smith said: "I've been struggling to find races for him and I think he goes to the field after this. We're turning the majority of them out now.

"Everything about this race suited him. Three miles is what he wants now but he's really improved for this ground too. It's been a bit of struggle this winter with the weather the way it has been."
