BLAZING WALKER, rated behind only Desert Orchid two seasons ago, was a most encouraging third on his first run since at Wetherby on Saturday.

William Hill offered 14-1 for the Gold Cup immediately after the race, but quickly cut their price to 11-1. 'I thought the horse was at least 75 per cent fit and I would think the race will nearly have put him spot on,' his trainer, Peter Cheesbrough said. 'I would definitely want to get another race into him before Cheltenham.'
