All guns firing for HendersonHeadlines
Quantitativeeasing

Nicky Henderson goes into the Paddy Power Gold Cup this afternoon with a three-strong team that includes two in the familiar colours of JP McManus.

Quantitativeeasing finished second last year and takes his chance again, having won the Spinal Research Atlantic 4 Gold Cup at Prestbury Park the following month. He is competing off a 9lb higher mark than last year.

The McManus-Henderson team have a second string to their bow in Nadiya De La Vega, who was a winner at the track last month and is the mount of Tony McCoy.

Frank Berry, racing manager for McManus, said: "Quantitativeeasing ran a blinder in the race last year and he seems to run well fresh. Nicky is very happy with him and we're hoping for a good run again.

"Nadiya De La Vega won well there the last day, but this probably looks a bit better race."

Henderson's third runner is Triolo D'Alene, for whom Barry Geraghty is attempting to get down to 10st 1lb.

The jockey told his ATR blog: "The last time I did it was at the Galway Festival and you might remember it nearly came off back in November 2010 when I did the 10st 1lb on Burton Port when we were second in the Hennessy Gold Cup.

"We've now got a 13lb pull with Hunt Ball (from March) and although that won't be enough on paper, I'm absolutely certain you didn't see the real Triolo D'Alene that day because his wind wasn't right. He didn't run anywhere near the form that had won him two chases in France and one at Ascot.

"Nicky Henderson has seen to that and I was delighted with him when he came back to run eight lengths second to Zitenka at Market Rasen in May."
