Ashkazar Cheltenham Festival Target

Thursday 14th February 2008

A decision has yet to be reached as to Ashkazar's Cheltenham Festival target as David Pipe has yet to make a decision as to which race he will go in. Ashkazar finished fourth to Alan King�s progressive Franchoek in a Grade One at Chepstow in December, the four-year-old was a good winner of a novices� hurdle at Sandown at the beginning of the month. �I�m not sure which race I�ll run Ashkazar in yet. I�ve got to speak to the owner, David Johnson, because I�m not sure if he likes the JCB Triumph Hurdle that much. Ashkazar is in the Anglo Irish Bank Supreme Novices� Hurdle as well and I expect that we�ll enter him in handicaps too, so he�ll have plenty of options. We�ll see closer to the time but he�s come out of his Sandown race in good form.�

One of the David Pipe's horse that will be seen at the festival is Acambo who is aimed at the Arkle Chase. He got the season off to a perfect start, winning a beginners� chase on his debut over the larger obstacles but had a run over hurdles on his most recent start after taking a fall on his second outing over fences. �Acambo will hopefully have a run before The Irish Independent Arkle Chase for more experience. He had a run over hurdles for a confidence booster after his fall.�
