George looking to Champion for God's Own

The eight-year-old holds two entries at the Festival

Trainer Tom George is confident God’s Own is ready to make an impact at this year’s Cheltenham Festival.

Second to Un De Sceaux last season's Arkle, the eight-year-old looked in good form when he finished second to Josses Hill at Kempton recently.

The Gelding holds two entries at the Festival, with George leaning towards the Champion Chase over the Ryanair Hurdle at this stage.

"I'm very happy with him.

"He came out of his Kempton race very well and we're just stepping things up with him now and he'll be ready for Cheltenham," said George.

"He's in the Ryanair and the Champion Chase. At this stage we're probably leaning towards the Champion Chase with him, but we haven't made any firm decisions yet."
