Sarabad tried to make all under Paul Townend. However he was headed at the last by the Andrew Lynch-ridden, Henry de Bromhead-trained Sizing Jo'burg and the successful Old Vic gelding went on to score by nine and a half lengths.
Lynch explained: "It wasn't a bad run at Cheltenham last time (8th there in a bumper). He'd probably want a bit of nicer ground. It's dead ground out there. He's only a handy horse and he jumps hurdles like they're fences.
"He galloped all the way to the line." (MG & EM)
