UNOWHATIMEANHARRY booked his place at the Cheltenham Festival when completing a four-timer in the Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle at Exeter.

Trainer Harry Fry, based at Seaborough, has the luxury of having a couple of options for the progressive stayer with the Pertemps Final and the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle under consideration.

Always travelling well, the eight-year-old went on at the last after West Approach had injected plenty of pace from halfway.

Unowhatimeanharry went to score cosily by four and a half lengths under Noel Fehily. Padge was 12 lengths back in third.

"He won a Grade Two novice at Cheltenham in December but it wasn't the strongest renewal of that race," said Fry.

"On official ratings he's still got quite a bit to find with the best novices in the Albert Bartlett.

"That's why we came here to try to qualify and give ourselves another option."

Unowhatimeanharry was introduced into the Pertemps betting at 12-1 with Ladbrokes, who cut him to 16-1 for the Albert Bartlett.

Fehily had earlier given Overtown Express (6-1) an ice-cool ride to register a cheeky success in the Bathwick Tyres Barnstaple 'National Hunt' Novices' Hurdle and initiate a double for him and Fry.

Fehily sat tight until producing Harry Fry's eight-year-old at the last moment to land the spoils by 10 lengths from the 8-11 favourite Rolling Dylan.

"He's a proper hold-up horse. Noel was the one making the decisions. He decided to wait and wait and it paid off," Fry told Racing UK.

"The owners have been very patient. He won his point-to-point then ended up missing nearly two seasons with a tendon injury.

"If he is A1 in the morning, we'll get him out again while conditions are like this and run him in a similar race under a penalty. We'll try to make the most of it before it dries out."
