Dynaste maintained his 100% record over fences with an impressive display in the Kauto Star Feltham Novices' Chase at Kempton.

Already favourite for the RSA Chase after wins on his first two starts over fences at Cheltenham and Newbury, Dynaste cemented his position at the head of the ante-post market for the staying novice chase championship with an impeccable performance.

Tom Scudamore held up the David Pipe-trained runner at the rear in the early stages but moved the 8-13 shot into a more prominent spot as the race progressed.

Jumping into the lead four out, Dynaste had the opposition at full stretch as he powered to a nine-length win over Hadrian's Approach.

Both Paddy Power and BetVictor cut Dynaste to 5-2 from 5-1 for the RSA Chase.

Scudamore told Channel 4 Racing: "He's run very, very well again. You couldn't fail to be impressed with him.

"As boring as it sounds, it's just straight forward with him."

Pipe was similarly pleased, adding: "He was very impressive, very good.

"The step up to three miles obviously did him no harm. He's improving quickly."
