Former Gold Cup winner Imperial Commander has been ruled out of running in this years edition of the Cheltenham Gold Cup. The 12 year old has a lung infection
trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies confirmed today. There is hope he will be able to run in the Grand National in Aintree later in the season.
Cue Card has been diverted to avoid a show down with Sprinter Sacre in the Queen Mother Champion chase and will now compete in the Ryan Air Chase.
A horse who still has a chance of maybe taking part in the Cheltenham festival is Grands Crus. He galloped at exeter race course today and the 8 year old grey still has entries in the Ryan Air Chase and the Ladbrokes world hurdle. He has an outside chance of taking up one of these entries, which will be his first start since pulling up at he Argento chase in Cheltenham.
Current Champion Flat jockey Richard Hughes is hoping to add a Cheltenham Festival win to his list of top wins. He has applied for a jumps licence, and if approved he will ride unbeaten Sgt Reckless for trainer Mick Channon in the Weatherbys Champion Bumper.
