Mick Channon: Set to send Sgt Reckless to Cheltenham

Mick Channon's six-year-old bolted up on his racecourse debut at Wincanton in May and had little trouble following up at Lingfield earlier this month.

There has been talk of switching to hurdles for the rest of the campaign, but he will instead remain on the level at Prestbury Park.

Channon said: "Sgt Reckless is in great form and has done everything right.

"He's going to go for the Festival Bumper."

Sgt Reckless can be backed for the Champion Bumper at 33/1 with Sky Bet.
