Bobs team praying for thawHeadlines
Bobs Worth

Connections of Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup ante-post favourite Bobs Worth are "desperate" for the Argento Chase to take place.

Cheltenham Trials Day on Saturday is in doubt due to the wintry weather, but the Hennessy Gold Cup winner would still run in the traditional Gold Cup trial if it was rescheduled for a later date.

Malcolm Kimmins, who heads the syndicate who own him, The Not Afraid Partnership, said: "As far as we're concerned, everything has gone well since the Hennessy and it's all systems go for the weekend. That is up in the air due to the weather but, like everyone in racing, we're desperate for it to be on."

He added: "Nicky Henderson has always said since the Hennessy that he'd have one more run before the Gold Cup, but obviously he does go well fresh as he went straight from winning the RSA Chase to the Hennessy without a run.

"He could go straight to the Gold Cup without a run as there's a lack of options.

"I really hope that even if Saturday is abandoned they will do everything they can to save the meeting, as so many people have requested it.

"We really could do with an alternative if it is off."

The syndicate have already been given a boost with the news that plans are in hand to stage the Cheltenham meeting on Sunday if the weather does not relent in time for Saturday's card to go ahead.
