Touch And Go With Goshen For Haydock Outing Ahead Of Cheltenham

Goshen

The Triumph Hurdle favourite Goshen for Gary Moore is said to be running at Haydock on Saturday in one final prep run ahead of the Cheltenham festival but it now looks likely he will sit it out and head straight to Prestbury Park.

Goshen coming from the flat this season has raced three times over timber and he is still unbeaten winning his events by a combined 68 lengths.

He needs to learn to jump slightly better and that may have been the reason that Moore is thinking of running him once more before the festival, but with heavy ground forecasted it looks more and more likely he will be saved for the festival.

The son of Authorized is a best priced 9/2 currently for the Triumph Hurdle with him joint at the top of the market with the Dan Skelton trained Allmankind.

Moore believed that entering him in the Saturday’s Unibet Victor Ludorum Juvenile Hurdle at Haydock on Saturday would bring him on again but giving him a tough slog in heavy conditions could hinder his run at the festival.

(Credit At The Races) Moore said: “He’s in great order and looks fantastic.“He’s nearly got his summer coat, and I couldn’t be more pleased with him.

“They say it’s heavy ground (at Haydock) – and he’s already had one trip up there and they called racing off. If it started to be in the balance again, I won’t send him – I don’t need him to have a six-hour journey and turn round and come back home again.

“I’m quite happy to wait for Cheltenham. He’s a very clean-winded horse and very easy to train. I’d like to have got one more run in, just to gain a bit of experience, but I don’t want to run him in a bog and tear the guts out of him- with Cheltenham only four weeks away.”
