Racing: Gold Cup gamble starts on Trabolgan
Monday 28 November 2005
Saturday's impressive Hennessy Gold Cup winner Trabolgan is reported to have come out of the race well and is on course for the King George VI Chase at Sandown on Boxing Day.
Nicky Henderson, his trainer, said: "I've never won the King George, but it's the natural race for him."
Trabolgan is now down to 11-2 with Coral for the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Spokesman Simon Clare said: "This is the biggest ante-post gamble of the jump season so far and as soon as we offered 8-1 the floodgates opened."
