His stablemate at David Cottin's, Sans Bruit (Triple Threat), who runs with a hood, led all the way and took off again after the last hurdle to score 12 lengths ahead of Ain’t Got Wings (Martaline), who beat Paradiso by 2 lengths for the second place. The winner races for Louis Baudron, also his breeder. It was his 3rd victory in six outings, five over hurdles. Last time out in June, he had won the Rocking Chair Hurdle at Auteuil.
