Salden chasing Plumpton bonusHeadlines
Salden Licht

Alan King has one eye on scooping a lucrative bonus for winning at the Cheltenham Festival with Salden Licht following his victory at Plumpton on Sunday.

Having shown smart form over hurdles last season, the nine-year-old built on last month's promising chasing debut second at Hereford by scoring decisively at the second attempt.

Salden Licht landed one of four qualifying novice chases at Plumpton which means if he does go on to Cheltenham Festival glory this term, he will scoop a further £60,000 as part of an initiative sponsored by broadcasters SIS.

The last horse to pick up the bonus was King's Voy Por Ustedes, who was successful at Plumpton before winning the 2006 Arkle Trophy.

"I was delighted with him at Plumpton. I thought he had come on for his first run and that's the way it looked," said the Barbury Castle handler.

"Hopefully he can keep progressing and it is nice that we now have the option of going for the Cheltenham bonus.

"He would definitely have another run before then anyway and then we'll see about what race he could run in at Cheltenham.

"I'd imagine he'll have a few entries."
