It's a 10 from The Judges.

Tue 19 Apr 2022

WINNER 29 OF 2022: TANGO TARA, trained by Paul Nicholls OBE and ridden by Harry Cobden: 'The Capital Windscreens 08000 0269126 Replacement Service Handicap Hurdle' over 2m 3.5f at Chepstow.

Having his third start under rules, Tango Tara was making his handicap debut, after a good 2nd at Taunton and a 3rd over course and distance in February. Harry had him to the fore, tracking the leader and he was jumping slickly throughout. Three from home, Harry asked him to increase the tempo and he responded, taking the lead. He faced a challenge coming to the last, but he stayed on strongly, although idling close to the line, he was always doing enough ,to win by 1 and a 1/4 lengths.

Watch the race replay here:

Timeform rated it as a career best 117 performance, saying: "Showed improved form to get off the mark, making handicap debut after just 2 starts, still looking green in front and likely to have more to offer; close up, led 3 out, ridden 2 out, mistake last, looked in control run-in, idled near finish, ridden out."

Syndicate manager Tom says: "Well done to his owners on his victory- it’s lovely when a bit of a plan like that can come together! He jumped lovely throughout, maybe making his only mistake at the last but thankfully his main challenger made a similar mistake and we were able to just keep up to our work and get the job done. He has a lovely traditional action that will see him to good effect on softer ground and we can't wait to see him novice chasing next season, after his summer break. We are very excited about the future for him."
