Dan Skelton's Langer Dan travelled all over his rivals under Harry Skelton who waited until after the last to push the button and take over from Miss Heritage at the head of affairs.

The response was immediate as Langer Dan cruised into the lead and he ran away from them for an eased-down five-length victory.

Miss Heritage was second, with Mack The Man third and Hasanabad fourth.

The winner now qualifies for a £50,000 bonus if he goes onto win any race at the Cheltenham Festival, with Betfair slashing him to 8s from 33s for the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle next Friday.

He'll race under a 5lb penalty should he take his chance at Cheltenham.
