Tanawar has always liked Catterick and travelled supremely well from his plum draw to chase down the leader and get up in the shadow of the post.
"TANAWAR, whose last two wins were off 6lb higher, was clearly well handicapped and, as he had decent form over C&D, he had plenty going for him. On his first start for 202 days, he showed real tenacity to wear down the runner-up. Life will be tougher if, as expected, he goes up a few pounds for this, but he can avoid a penalty if turned out quickly."
