Who Dares Wins Gerry Feilden
Who Dares Wins (4/1) reeled in the enterprisingly ridden Makethedifference to win the bet365 Intermediate Hurdle at Newbury.

Charlie Deutsch set a steady pace aboard Makethedifference but kicked clear on the back of the course and opened up a commanding advantage entering the straight.
The eight-year-old, who was wearing a visor for the first time, had most of his rivals in trouble in a race better known as the Gerry Feilden Hurdle.
However, Who Dares Wins emerged from the pack to give chase and Wayne Hutchinson looked confident in the saddle approaching the second last.
Those vibes didn't prove to be misplaced as the four-year-old comfortably picked up the tiring leader to win going away by nine lengths.
Makethedifference was caught close home for minor honours by stablemate Theligny in a race where a number of the more fancied horses failed to fire.
King said: "He wants a strong gallop and the fact the other horse (Makethedifference) went off like that helped us.
"For a second or two I was a bit worried, but once he (Who Dares Wins) started to close up two out, I thought we might be all right.
"We'll see what the handicapper does, but something like the Ladbroke at Ascot, where they go a strong gallop, might be for him."
