Former smart Flat performer Forgotten Voice is making his mark over jumps and landed the William Hill Dovecote Novices' Hurdle at Kempton.
Now eight and off for a long time before starting his new career, the handsome gelding has won three out of four hurdle starts and used his high cruising speed to peg back 15-8 favourite Brick Red and accelerate five lengths clear.
Trainer Nicky Henderson said of the 9-2 winner: "He did win a Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot so he has got pace, and now he is learning to settle. He jumps well, and he's a lovely horse."
While Henderson did not divulge plans, bookmakers seem to feel it would be likely Forgotten Voice could head for the Vincent O'Brien County Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, with Paddy Power offering 20-1, Boylesports 14-1 and Betfred just 10s.
Midnight Sail earned his reward for a string of consistent efforts in the Rewards4Racing Handicap Chase.
Second in three handicaps before a weaker effort at Plumpton, Alan King's runner was kept to the fore by Robert Thornton and galloped to a length and three-quarters success over Lexicon Lad.
"He deserved that - he has been running well all season," said King of the 5-1 shot. "He's one of mine who has been waiting for better ground - the only time he was disappointing was at Plumpton last time, where it was hock-deep."
Lucy Wadham's Baby Shine (12-1) regained the winning thread in the Soccer AM Handicap Hurdle, while an inspired ride from Ed Cookson to poach a huge lead on Such A Legend (33-1) paid off in the racinguk.com bumper.
