Vaniteux is in total command at Doncaster

Vaniteux is unlikely to run in the Sky Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham despite a stylish win at Doncaster.

Sent off at 8/11 for the Eventmasters Ltd EBF National Hunt Novices' Hurdle ,he was cantering throughout under Barry Geraghty, and jumping noticeably more fluently than at Kempton the time before.

His rider asked for a big leap at the final flight and his partner responded in style and quickened 12 lengths clear of nearest pursuer Portway Flyer (5/1) with Gone Too Far (11/4) in third.

Henderson said: "He's very, very nice and that was a learning curve. It was only two miles at Kempton and he just didn't have time to organise himself and he was flat to the boards. But he doesn't really any further than that (two and a half miles).

"I don't think we'll go to Cheltenham this year, the two-and-half-miler at Aintree might be more his cup of tea. He's one for the future and hopefully he'll be at Cheltenham one day."
