More Of That heading straight to Festival


Former World Hurdle winner More Of That is to head straight to the Cheltenham Festival without the aid of another run.

Trained by Jonjo O'Neill, More Of That is unbeaten in his two starts over fences this season but testing ground conditions have resulted in him missing a number of targets.

He had been expected to run in Saturday's Better Odds With Betfair Novices' Chase but once again conditions have been deemed to be unsuitable and he will now head straight to Cheltenham.

"He won't be running on Saturday because of the ground," Frank Berry, racing manager to owner JP McManus confirmed. "We were hoping it would dry up a bit, but it's still soft, heavy in places on the chase track.

"He's in great form and Jonjo is very happy with him. We were hoping it might dry out to being soft, but when it's still heavy, we don't want to run.

"We'd have loved to get another run into him, but Jonjo isn't overly worried if he can't, and it looks like he'll probably go straight to Cheltenham now. We know he has a preference for nice ground."
