Politologue slams rivals
Paul Nicholls brought up an Ascot hat-trick as Politologue dominated from the front in the Mitie Noel Novices' Chase.
Politologue: Put in a wonderful round of jumping at Ascot
The five-year-old made a big impression on his debut over fences at Haydock last month and was the 10/11 favourite stepped up to Grade Two level.
Some accurate leaps put the pressure on his rivals and even racing down the back straight Royal Vacation and Captain Chaos were feeling the pinch.
Eventual runner-up Rock The Kasbah did his best to make a race of it, but Politologue was not for catching and despite idling after the final fence, he still came home with four lengths in hand.
