Dartnall ponders Giles gameplanHeadlines
Giles Cross

A trip to Ireland or a run in the Betfred Grand National Trial are among the options for Giles Cross after Victor Dartnall gave his stable star a clean bill of health following the Coral Welsh National.

Runner-up in the last two runnings of the Chepstow race, the 11-year-old was making his seasonal reappearance due to an outbreak of equine herpes at Dartnall's Devon yard.

Having jumped with his usual fluency at the head of affairs, Denis O'Regan felt him emptying quickly on the run to the third-last and he was pulled up.

"I'm delighted with the way he has come out of the race. He ate up well and is feeling pleased with himself. As always, his jumping was an absolute joy to watch," the Barnstaple handler told www.victordartnallracing.com.

"We'll chat things through with his owner and decide where he goes next. His options include Haydock's Grand National Trial or we may have a trip to Ireland.

"It was great to have our first winner with Seebright since coming back. He's come out of his race very well too and could go back to Chepstow at the end of the month.

"We're going to take a bit of a pull now.

"We've had our first flush of runners, we know that they've been a touch short of work to win on this very heavy ground, and an extra week of fast work won't do them any harm."
