PAUL NICHOLLS' Politologue registered an impressive chasing debut win and in doing so earned a quote of 25-1 for the RSA Chase as the five-year-old galloped and jumped like an old hand on route to a ten-length success.

Haydock: Betfair Ready Newton Novices' Hurdle (Listed) 1m7½f, 4yo+
RICHARD HOBSON'S Tahira made light work of the splashy conditions, holding off favourite Capitaine as they practically swam home on a soaked track.
Tahira had a lovely run and jumped with precision. She led from the off, her ears pricked throughout and her competitors failed to provide her with any challenge as she won by two and a quarter lengths under Harry Skelton.
Hobson said: "She was a fit horse coming into the race. She'll have a break now and we'll bring her back in the spring for the mares' novice hurdle at Cheltenham. I've not got many in and to get black type is fantastic."
