    Elliott concedes Galopin is a formidable contender in the Cheltenham Gold Cup

    Gordon Elliott’s Bold Challenge at Boodles Cheltenham Gold Cup

    Gordon Elliott faces a formidable task as Gerri Colombe aims to outshine the impressive Galopin Des Champs in the upcoming Boodles Cheltenham Gold Cup. The Willie Mullins-trained Galopin Des Champs, last season’s dominant winner, has returned stronger with victories in prestigious races like the Savills Chase and Irish Gold Cup.

    Gerri Colombe, an accomplished Grade One-winning novice from his previous campaign, had a promising start this season but was convincingly bested by Galopin Des Champs during their recent encounter. Despite Elliott’s confidence in Colombe’s abilities, bridging a 23-length gap seems daunting against such a stellar performer.

    Elliott believes that Gerri Colombe performed below par in the Savills Chase and anticipates better results on firmer ground. With preparations geared towards peak performance on race day, he remains optimistic about his stayer’s chances.

    Twin Assault: Conflated and Fil Dor Ready for Ryanair Chase

    In addition to Gerri Colombe’s challenge, Elliott is gearing up for a dual assault in the Ryanair Chase with contenders Conflated and Fil Dor. While Conflated looks to rebound after some unseating incidents this winter, Fil Dor will test his mettle over an extended distance following decent performances recently.

    The sale of Fil Dor to Robcour adds another layer of anticipation as both horses aim to make their mark at Cheltenham alongside their stablemates under Elliott’s guidance.

    New Hope Rises: Found A Fifty Targeting Arkle Trophy

    Found A Fifty eyes victory in the Arkle Trophy under Elliot’s tutelage after narrowly missing out on triumph in previous outings. Showing maturity and improved composure with each race will be key as they strive for success at one of racing’s most prestigious events.

    Zanahiyr Steps Into New Territory at Turners’ Novices’ Chase

    Zanahiyr transitions from Champion Hurdler into novice chaser territory as excitement builds around their potential debut over fences at Cheltenham Festival—a significant shift that could redefine their career trajectory under Elliot’s strategic planning.
