OWNER Philip Reynolds, best associated with Cheltenham Festival winners Presenting Percy and Mall Dini, has another live prospect for the Festival at Prestbury Park in March as he recently purchased Mighty Stowaway (6/4 favourite), just days before the nine-year-old claimed his third open of the season.

Such was the strong tempo that he set under in-form rider Tom Hamilton, the son of Stowaway had many of his rivals out of their comfort zones with a circuit still to race, and in the end he proved five lengths too good for Marinero. The runner-up was forced to settle for that position for his second consecutive visit to Fairwood Park.
