Further to our story last week, the current Cheltenham news is still all about trainer Philip Fenton and his hotly tipped horse, Last Installment.
Fenton has confirmed that Last Installment will be making the trip across the Irish Sea this week in preperation for his run in the Gold Cup. All Fenton's entries passed the dope tests required after banned substances including anabolic steroids were found in the trainer's Tipperary stables.
However, there are still no guarantees the horse will run. He's had leg problems in the past that have hindered his career, and his trainers and owners do not want to risk any recurrences.
The final decision will likely be made on the day, once they know what the ground will be like. If it's hard and dry, he may be pulled. But if it's on the easy/soft side, Last Installment should take the start as one of the favourites.
Fenton's stable also has the top weight entry in the Coral Cup, Dunguib. Out for three years, the horse has made a very impressive return and looks set to run strongly this weekend.
In further Gold Cup news, Rocky Creek, the 25/1 outsider being tipped by some, has been pulled out after catching ringworm. It's a setback for the young horse, but his trainer Paul Nicholls is doubtless grateful that it's a treatable, albeit highly contagious, condition, and that he'll be able to return to racing shortly.
Expect to see him run later this year in the Grand National.
