Gold Cup goal for Definitly Red
Trainer Brian Ellison says Definitly Red will enter the Gold Cup at the Cheltenham Festival despite last month's defeat at Kelso.
Definitly Red won the Charlie Hall and the Many Clouds Chase at Wetherby and Aintree respectively earlier this season but suffered a surprise loss to Captain Redbeard at Kelso in a two-horse race.
Ellison is unconcerned by that loss and says the 10-year-old will have another attempt at the Gold Cup, having finished sixth in the Cheltenham showpiece last year.
"Touch wood everything is good with him at the moment," said Ellison, as reported by Sky Sports.
"They just didn't go fast enough for him last time. That shouldn't be a problem at Cheltenham.
"He'll have another good gallop this week and that will be it.
"He'll be going to Cheltenham good and fresh."
