Jessies Dream To Go Straight To RSA Chase After Leopardstown Defeat

Wednesday 12th January 2011

The Gordon Elliott trained Jessies Dream will go straight to the Cheltenham Festival despite his shock defeat at Leopardstown over the weekend. The Drinmore Novice Chase winner went into the Tote Pick Six Killiney Chase on Sunday as an odds-on favourite, but after failing to pick up Magnanimity over the final fence it was expected he would have another run before heading for a crack at the RSA Chase. Elliott has decided though that he will run best fresh at Cheltenham, he should like the better ground at Prestbury Park in March so will be aimed with that in mind. Jessies Dream has been well backed for the RSA Chase since his win in the Drinmore Novice Chase at Fairyhouse before Christmas and he will still go to Cheltenham well backed with punters to run well despite his poor run at Leopardstown.

The RSA Chase is looking like a hot race at the Cheltenham Festival with a number of contenders staking their claims so far this season, the 3 mile chase is often used as a stepping stone towards the Gold Cup so these could be the superstars of the future. There is no doubt that Time For Rupert has been the most impressive of the RSA contenders so far having won both of his starts over fences so far for Paul Webber and he is likely to go into Cheltenham as the favourite. Outside of him there is no surprise to see Willlie Mullins with a strong potential hand, the Irish Trainer has the impressive Quel Esprit as well as Mikael D'Haguenet to potentially run and both of them look to have genuine claims of running well if they take their chance. There is no doubt that Jessies Dream deserves his place in this company and if his Leopardstown run can be forgiven he must have a nice each-way chance when we get to the Cheltenham Festival. Gordon Elliott has said that Jessies Dream will want decent ground while the likely fast pace of the RSA Chase is also likely to suit making him an interesting prospect for punters to run the rule over.
