The Paul Nicholls-trained Cyrname truly put his rivals to the sword in the bet365 Handicap Chase at Ascot on Saturday, after an all-the-way front end display saw him come clear by over twenty lengths.
Looked well, he jumped fantastically and was always in a different county to his opposition. Jockey Harry Cobden just had to keep him up to his work on the turn for home, but he was always clear and never in trouble.
The 7yo gelding looked a smart novice last term, and finally recaptured some of that spark after a difficult campaign so far. It was his first win in almost a year.
