Cause primed for big showHeadlines
Cause Of Causes

Gordon Elliott is confident Cause Of Causes can make his presence felt in the valuable Racing Post Hurdle at Cheltenham today.

The four-year-old was a narrow winner of a competitive little race at Fairyhouse earlier this month and lost out by a head in the Galway Hurdle in August.

The trainer said: "He has come out of his win at Fairyhouse very well and he is in good nick, so everything seems OK. It was his first run for a while and we thought he needed a gallop on grass somewhere, so it worked out perfectly. Davy (Condon) didn't knock him around."

Elliott went on: "He has run below form twice at Perth, but every other run of his has been great and he goes to Cheltenham with a good, solid, each-way chance."

Nicky Henderson had to rule out Darlan due to the ground but the Seven Barrows handler has a second string to his bow in new recruit Cash And Go, a Grade One winner over hurdles for Edward O'Grady last Christmas and since bought by Robin Geffen.

The trainer continued: "I like Cash And Go. He's an enthusiastic character and needs to settle down a bit. I thought about going chasing, but a bit more time over hurdles will do him good."
