StanJames.com spokesman Rory Jiwani says, “It was nice to see Martin Keighley’s seven-year-old finally convert his obvious potential into a win over fences. We’ve cut him from 33/1 to 25/1 for the RSA Chase but we think he would struggle to see out the three-mile trip so we’ve also made him a 14/1 shot for the Jewson over two-and-a-half miles.
“Runner-up Solix and Invictus back in third are also both 14/1 for the Jewson with Nicky Henderson’s charge a 20/1 shot for the RSA Chase.
“Current Jewson and RSA favourite Grands Crus comfortably beat Champion Court at Cheltenham in November, and today’s result cements the grey’s reputation as the one to beat at Cheltenham unless connections opt for a tilt at the Gold Cup.”
