Three Course Specialists Entered in Gold Gup

« Back To News


Jonjo has made entries for three established course specialists in the Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup. They have a combined record of eight wins from 17 starts, each with a Festival win to their name.

Minella Rocco won last year's National Hunt Chase and has proved his stamina over four miles. He shaped well at The Open in the Betvictor Handicap Chase, finishing third. The following month, he looked to be coming with a winning run when falling at Aintree in the race won by Many Clouds. His record at Cheltenham is one from four.

More Of That has won four from six, starting with the Relkeel Hurdle in December 2013 on his way to winning the 2014 Ladbrokes World Hurdle, then two novice chases at Cheltenham before coming home third in the RSA Chase last March despite breaking a blood vessel a mile from home. He made his seasonal debut being pulled up on the final turn behind Taquin Du Seuil in the Betvictor Gold Cup, finished third in the Peterborough Gold Cup and sixth in the Lexus at Leopardstown over Christmas.

Taquin Du Seuil boasts three from seven, having won a novice chase at Cheltenham in November 2013 and the JLT Novices Chase at the 2014 Festival. A year later, he finished sixth in the Ryanair Chase and returned to win the Betvictor Gold Cup in November.
