Argento aim for PrinceHeadlines
Wayward Prince

Wayward Prince will test his Gold Cup credentials in the Argento Chase at Cheltenham on January 26.

The nine-year-old was taken away from Ian Williams at the end of last season and is now handled by owner Hilary Parrott, a permit holder from Gloucester.

After an encouraging second behind Silviniaco Conti in the Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby on his return to action, Wayward Prince registered his first win in the best part of two years in a Listed event at Aintree a month ago.

He is now set to return to Cheltenham for the first time since finishing a close third in the 2011 RSA Chase.

Parrott said: "He's absolutely fine. He's just been cantering away and we look forward to the Argento on the 26th, all going well between now and then.

"The weather has been very wet here, as it has everywhere else, but we have an all-weather gallop and a grass gallop, which has actually stayed pretty dry, so he hasn't missed any work so far.

"We decided after he won at Aintree we'd wait for the Argento. It's a Gold Cup trial and hopefully if he runs well, he will go for the Gold Cup.

"We were delighted with him at Aintree. I think he deserved to win again and it was a great day for the horse and all of us.

"I think it was one of his best performances and one of the best rounds of jumping he has every produced. Jack (Doyle, jockey) gave him a peach of a ride."

Wayward Prince is a 66-1 shot with Stan James for the Cheltenham Gold Cup in March.
