Trainer Colin Tizzard is planning to try to emulate Gordon Elliot-trained Tiger Roll’s victory at Glenfarclas Chase and Randox Health Grand National last year with Ultragold. Tizzard and his team had a brainwave with Ultragold to run in Glenfarclas Cross Country at Cheltenham horse racing festival next week, and they’re hoping that it will pay off.
Aside from this, Ultragold, a winner at Dual Topham Chase, will be running at the Ultima Handicap Chase too. But Tizzard clarified that Ultragold has a better chance of claiming victory in the cross-country chase at Cheltenham Festival races.
Tizzard also pointed out that the Cheltenham Festival 2019’s cross-country fences will be a stepping stone for the 11-year-old runner to the Grand National. He was tested over three miles and six furlongs at Warwick and he stayed on well so there seems to be no issue with his stamina. The trainer and his team believe that Ultragold deserves a break at the big race as he had been great over the fences with two wins in the Topham.
