Quantitative back at CheltenhamHeadlines
Quantitativeeasing

Quantitativeeasing finished second in the Paddy Power Gold Cup 12 months ago and he takes his chance again at Cheltenham this afternoon.

The Nicky Henderson-trained seven-year-old won the Spinal Research Atlantic 4 Gold Cup at Prestbury Park after last year's effort and while two subsequent unplaced efforts saw him drop a little in the ratings, he is still competing off a 9lb higher mark.

Frank Berry, racing manager to owner JP McManus, said: "He ran a blinder last year and seems to run well fresh. Nicky is very happy with him and we're hoping for a good run again. He is a few pounds higher in the handicap but that's the price you pay for winning a good race at Cheltenham. He's in good form, though."

The McManus-Henderson team have a second string to their bow in Nadiya De La Vega, who was a winner at this track last month.

"She won well there the last day but this probably looks a bit better race. She did look progressive last season but then she just tailed off a bit towards the end. She's back in good form now, though."
