Finian's Oscar provided Colin Tizzard with yet another Grade One by powering away from his rivals to win the 32Red Tolworth Novices' Hurdle at Sandown Park.

Stepping up in class having won on his hurdling debut at Hereford, the result never looked in any doubt.

Sent off the 11-10 favourite, he was steadied into the last by Tom O'Brien but kept up the gallop in testing ground to win by five lengths.

Man United legend witnesses Nautical Haven victory

Joint-owner Sir Alex Ferguson was on hand to witness Nautical Haven break his duck at the third time of asking in the Sky Bet Making Betting Better Median Auction Maiden Stakes at York.

A promising sixth on his debut over this course and distance, he was then a little disappointing on his next outing at Chester.

But sent off at 5-1 under Tom Eaves, the Kevin Ryan-trained juvenile blasted out of the stalls and never saw another rival, holding off Storm Cry by three-quarters of a length.

"I'm not sure if he needed a run at Chester or what but we expected a bit more there," said Ferguson, who owns the Harbour Watch colt with Jack Hanson.

"His first run was very good and that's confirmed it. I'm not sure but he could go back to five furlongs looking at that as he had them all off the bridle fairly early."
