Trev to take Cheltenham testHeadlines
Action from Cheltenham

According To Trev is likely to represent local trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies in the Neptune Investment Management Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham on Sunday.

The Naunton handler would also have considered The New One, but the four-year-old sustained a minor injury, so was not entered for the Grade Two heat over two miles and five furlongs.

The New One was a winner over the course and distance last month and Twiston-Davies expects him to be back on the track some time next month.

"He just got a little cut, so he's had to have a stitch in it which has put him out of that race, but he's fine, 100% and he'll run just before Christmas, something like that," said Twiston-Davies.

The trainer is happy to give According To Trev the chance to continue his winning ways over the smaller obstacles, having struck at Worcester in June and also at Cheltenham over three miles one and a half furlongs last month.

"He'll probably go back to Cheltenham at the weekend. He did really well last time and deserves to have another go," he said.

Pat Griffin will make a decision later in the week on whether Maggio will contest the race. The seven-year-old won at Kelso on Saturday and is now back in Ireland.

Maggio has his quirks, which is why he has not run at home since May 2011, but he certainly has an engine, as he showed when hacking up by 18 lengths at the Borders track last weekend.

The trainer said: "We've given him the option, so we'll just see. He's out in the paddock at the moment, recovering. It might just be asking a bit much having two trips over in a week.

"We run him over there because he can plant himself at the start at home, but over there the assistant starter can walk behind him and that sets him off. You can't do that here. My son James rides him out and he's altered his mind, got him settled. He'll know if he's in good enough shape to go."
