The son of brilliant chaser Lady Cricket and a half-brother to the useful Swing Bowler, Red Sherlock scooted clear up the hill to win by 23 lengths, leaving even his trainer impressed.
"I don't know quite what he beat, but he couldn't have been any more impressive," said David Pipe.
"The plan will be to give him one more run in another bumper and if he wins that to go to Cheltenham with him. I don't know how good he is, but somebody said to me that he was the best chance of an English-trained horse beating the Irish in the race."
