Analysis

Charlie Longsdon: "Things didn't go right for him at Cheltenham, but we have always liked him. There are all sorts of options for him, I think the Challow will come too soon, but there is Cheltenham on New Year's Day, a race at Warwick and maybe even the final of this race (at the Festival). We've struggled for winners a bit recently, but that was our 50th this season."
