Dynaste chasing Feltham gloryHeadlines

Dynaste bids to confirm his position at the head of the ante-post market for Cheltenham's RSA Chase when he faces six rivals in the Kauto Star Feltham Novices' Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day.

The six-year-old, trained by David Pipe, has looked the best young staying chaser around this term with convincing victories at Cheltenham and at Newbury.

He is now given the task of emulating his stable companion Grands Crus, who took this race from Silviniaco Conti 12 months ago.

Regular jockey Tom Scudamore admits Dynaste's form is so far head and shoulders above the rest.

Scudamore said: "He has been very impressive. It always gives you so much confidence when horses you have beaten easily end up winning nice races on their own behalf. He seems in great form."

Trainer Nicky Henderson accepts Dynaste is the one to fear as he takes him on with Hadrian's Approach and Molotov.

"Dynaste is going to take a lot of beating," the Seven Barrows handler told At The Races.

"He's the best three-mile novice we have seen this year and is a stand-out, but one can't just shirk the issue. They are both in good form and deserve to take their chance."

Champion trainer Paul Nicholls expects Poungach to put up a good show after the six-year-old got off the mark over fences at the third attempt.

He told Betfair: "He beat Super Duty at Haydock, which has turned out to be really good form, and I think he's a horse with lots of ability. He has quite a nice future and I think a flat track and three miles will suit him well. He jumps nicely, so we'll take on Dynaste."
