Definitly Red - Gold Cup & Grand National being considered


Definitly Red: entries in the Gold Cup & Grand National being considered

Following an impressive victory in the Grade 2, 188bet.co.uk Many Clouds Chase at Aintree last weekend Brian said yesterday Definitly Red will be entered up in the Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup in March and the Random Health Grand National in April.

Plans are still fluid as to where he will go next although the Listed, Sky Bet Chase at Doncaster on January 27th, 2018 is a possible stepping-stone to Cheltenham or Aintree.

Initially the Grand National was ruled out; he was extremely well in at the weights this year and will be at least 11lbs higher in next years running. He is currently on a mark of 159.

However following discussions with owner Phil Martin earlier this week, entries in the Cheltenham showpiece and Aintree spectacular are now being considered.

Definitly Red has come out of his race really well.
