Denman Entered In Argento Chase as Possible Warm Up For Cheltenham Gold Cup

Monday 25th January 2010

Outstanding chaser Denman could take part in the Argento Chase on Saturday which is the feature race of Festival Trials Day at Cheltenham on Saturday, January 30.

Denman boats an exceptional record at Cheltenham , with his four victories at the course including a terrific seven-length victory over Kauto Star in the 2008 totesport Cheltenham Gold Cup as well as a galloping success in the RSA Chase at the previous year’s Festival.

Apart from Denman, champion trainer Paul Nicholls may also be represented by the 2007 Ryanair Chase victor Taranis and Inchidaly Rock, who easily landed the Ryman The Stationer Novices’ Chase at Cheltenham ’s Boylesports International on December 12. A trio from the stable of Nigel Twiston-Davies consists of the 2008 winner Knowhere, Grade One scorer Ollie Magern and Beat The Boys, while David Pipe has entered Madison Du Berlais, who lowered the colours of Denman in Grade Two chases at Kempton and Aintree last season.

Barbers Shop was fourth behind Denman on that occasion and the Nicky Henderson-trained chaser, who is owned by The Queen, may also bid to book his place at this year’s Festival with a good run in either the Argento Chase or the Betfair Trophy Chase.
