Long Run targets festive cheer

December 24, 2012 12:21:01 UK

Long Run's owner Robert Waley-Cohen is targeting a return to form from his charge in the King George VI Chase on Boxing Day.

The horse, runner-up to Kauto Star last year, heads a field of 10 for the showpiece at Kempton Park and is 2.87 to win the race. He was beaten by Silviniaco Conti in the Betfair Chase at Haydock last month but Waley-Cohen is hoping for improvement on Wednesday.

He's [Long Run] in good order and we hope to have him cherry-ripe for Kempton.

"The race wasn't run to suit at Haydock and the ground was quite tricky for a horse that isn't used to running on that sort of heavy ground," he said.

"It's possible the Gold Cup he won as a six-year-old might have taken a hell of a lot out of him, it might be that Kauto Star was a hell of a good horse last year.

"He had a quiet week after Haydock but he's in good order and we hope to have him cherry-ripe for Kempton."

Kauto Star's half-brother Kauto Stone has been entered into the race by Paul Nicholls and is at 8.00, while David Pipe is hoping for success from Grands Crus and Junior.

Long Run's trainer Nicky Henderson also has Riverside Theatre running while Phillip Hobbs will be looking for more from Captain Chris, who finished third last year and is 17.00 to win this time around.
