Chatter proves his worthHeadlines
Chatterbox holds the lead jumping the last

Owners The Not Afraid Partnership clearly have another smart horse on their books as Chatterbox extended his unbeaten record to three in the Visit betfair.com/racingoffers Novices' Hurdle at Newbury.

Carrying the same colours as Hennessy winner Bobs Worth, Chatterbox is another to have surprised trainer Nicky Henderson.

It was a pretty smooth victory for the 5-4 favourite, who was pushed two lengths clear of promising newcomer Lac Fontana.

Henderson said: "He doesn't do anything spectacular at home, but he's very good when he goes on a racecourse. He's so like Bobs Worth it's untrue."

Asked if Chatterbox would fulfil either of his Cheltenham novice entries, the trainer said: "I suppose he's in there. I think he probably wants another year, but he hasn't done a lot wrong."

Mattie Batchelor was handed a 10-day ban (February 23-March 4) for failing to take all reasonable permissible measures on Ramona Chase.

Master Of The Sea continued his march up the weights in the Betfair Don't Settle For Less Handicap Hurdle. It was a fourth win in a row for Nigel Twiston-Davies' gelding, who has risen 38lb since starting off his run at Hereford in December.

Sent off at 8-1, he was ridden positively by the trainer's son Sam and still had four lengths in hand despite a belated effort from Captain Sunshine.

"He needed to run here so I could make sure he gets into one of the Festival handicaps," said Twiston-Davies snr. "He has so much speed, I'd think he'll run in one of the two-mile-five races."
