Houblon Des Obeaux made all the running for Venetia Williams and Aidan Coleman in the totepool Rising Stars Novices' Chase at Wincanton. In what looked on paper to be a red-hot renewal, several others were preferred in the market to Houblon Des Obeaux, who went off at 9-1 despite having been impressive when scoring on his debut over fences at Worcester.

Cape Tribulation struck for North Yorkshire trainer Malcolm Jefferson in a driving finish to the Pertemps Final at the Cheltenham Festival. Denis O'Regan got a great tune out of the 14-1 shot, who travelled sweetly and joined Cantlow at the final flight before galloping on strongly up the hill to land a cosy success from Catch Me, who stayed on resolutely to take second, three-quarters of a length behind the winner.
