Uttoxeter: Joss negotiates first step on Festival road.

Byline: Neil Morrice

JOSS NAYLOR proved the highlight of a day of mixed fortunes for Jonjo O'Neill when gaining a bloodless victory at on his debut over fences in the three-mile novice chase, writes Neil Morrice.

Last season's Coral Cup runner-up has always promised to find his metier over fences, especially with cut in the ground, and O'Neill was pleased with the virtually flawless jumping display of the odds-on favourite.

After confirming that the Royal & SunAlliance Chase is the long-term target, O'Neill said: "Things turned out easy for him, but he did jump well and did everything right. It's early days and my feeling is that he wants plenty of practice."
