Bordes books Bartlett ticketHeadlines
Utopie Des Bordes leaps the last as the grey Twigline falls

Utopie Des Bordes retained her unbeaten British record in the Listed Jane Seymour Mares' Novice Hurdle at Sandown and booked her ticket to the Cheltenham Festival.

Nicky Henderson's recruit, who was a Grade One winner over fences in France, went off the 11-10 favourite after opening her account at Doncaster. When Twigline crashed out at the last, Barry Geraghty's most significant danger was She Ranks Me, but she held her off bravely.

"She's not very big but she can jump, and she will go for the Albert Bartlett as we know she stays and the owner has Une Artiste for the David Nicholson (Mares' Hurdle)," said Henderson.

"She's been jumping fences round Auteuil, so hurdles should be easy for her and she's doing well. The beauty of her was she was still a novice over hurdles. This was the obvious stepping-stone for her."

The stewards queried why Ruby Walsh remounted Twigline and cantered her back, but were satisfied she had been examined by a vet.

Henderson and Geraghty added one more when Heronry (9-4 favourite) swallowed up Liberty Court in the Oxshott Novices' Handicap Hurdle.

Richard's Sundance (14-1) has been a valuable servant to the Victor Dartnall yard and a positive ride from Andrew Glassonbury saw the 11-year-old finish five lengths clear of Relax in the Alanbrooke Handicap Chase.
