Chipping Norton trainer Charlie Longsdon had Long Wave tuned in to strike at Fontwell.

The seven-year-old gelding, ridden by Kielan Woods, battled home by two and a quarter lengths from Porters War in a handicap chase over two miles and six furlongs.

However, there was a sting in the tail for Woods, who picked up a seven-day ban for his use of the whip.
