Cheltenham Festival News - Last Installment Heads To England

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.

Sunday's Racing at Warwick

We're picking out another race to focus on this weekend - this time it's the 4:20 at Warwick.

There are two current favourites - Loughalder and Bally Sands.

Loughalder is slowly creeping back up in the weights after a big drop towards the end of the last year, but his form is looking good. He was a winner last time out, and has won or placed four times in his last six races.

He recently beat a few of his fellow runners including joint favourite Bally Sands in his first race back after a wind operation.

The going is soft, which plays to his strengths, and you can still get him at 5/1 at Ladbrokes.

Bally Sands won this race a year ago. He's recovered form lately when he started running in cheekpieces again.

He ran strongly last time out and looks capable of doing so again. If things go his way he can certainly take the win, and you can still get him at slightly longer odds of 6/1 at Paddy Power.

Time for our outsider tip of the week - we're pulling in Dark Glacier for your consideration this time round.

His form looks mixed but there are reasons behind that. He was bumped up heavily in the weights after a reasonable win at the end of last year, and has run decently since. He's now dropped back down the handicap, and we think he's in with a chance of victory here.

He's as low as 14/1 in some places but we recommend a visit to Boyle Sports, who are still offering him at a very tempting 16/1.

Best of luck!
