King's assistant, Noel Williams, said: "Wayne just came in and said he felt like the real deal, and he certainly looks it.

"He's not actually entered in the Albert Bartlett at Cheltenham, but he is in the Neptune.

"I don't know what the plan is but looking at the way he travelled there you wouldn't be too worried about coming back in trip with him."

Hutchinson went on to complete a double aboard the Sue Smith-trained Cloudy Too (4/1) in the Betfred Treble Odds On Lucky 15's Novices' Handicap Chase.

Catterick scorer Only Orsenfoolsies (10/1) ran out a game winner of the Betfred 'Goals Galore' Victor Ludorum Juvenile Hurdle for Micky Hammond, staying on stoutly in the mud to beat favourite Zamdy Man by two and a half lengths.

Hammond's assistant, Gemma Hogg, said: "We bought him privately when he was a two-year-old, I think we took a £500 chance on him and he's done us proud.

"I think Micky is going to give him an entry in the Fred Winter at Cheltenham, but he'll probably wait for Aintree."

Seymour Eric (7/2) could be Cheltenham-bound after securing his fourth win on the bounce in the Pertemps Handicap Hurdle.

Winning trainer Martin Keighley said: "He destroyed them today.

"We'll see what mark he gets now. He could go for the Pertemps Final at Cheltenham and he is in the Albert Bartlett as well."

Cottage Oak (9/4 favourite) streaked 13 lengths clear in the concluding CGA Foxhunter Trial.
