The six-year-old competed in a star-studded field at Cheltenham earlier this month, in what was the first race of the world-famous festival.
He was up against the likes of Abracadabras and favourite Asterion Forlonge.
The Nicky Henderson-trained horse performed admirably on the day, despite making errors during the race.
Ridden by Nico de Boinville, he made a mistake at the third hurdle and was lucky not to be taken down by a faller at the fifth.
However, he rode through and claimed the prize by a head from Abracadabras.
Skelton, who won the Champions Chase with Politologue at Cheltenham, was clearly impressed with his performance and says he would like a chance to ride him again.
‘Everything that could go wrong did and he still won.
He has it all and looks set for a big future,’ he said.
