Verdict

Another handicap won in a procession this time by Nicky Henderson's ANDYTOWN who flew up the hill in the hands of Felix De Giles. He's one of the best claimers in the weighing room and he produced his mount just before the final flight where a good leap put the race to bed. He might be hard to place now but this was his day. Midnight Chase belied his triple-figure odds to run a blinder in second, while Big Eared Fran loomed up on the outside two from home but couldn't quicken when asked. He remains a promising horse and maybe this race came too quick for him.
