Crus in grand form for ArgentoHeadlines
Grands Crus

David Pipe thinks Grands Crus should be sharper than when he ran in the King George VI Chase when he lines up in the Argento Chase at Cheltenham.

The grey was having his first start since a wind operation at Kempton, where he finished third behind Long Run and Captain Chris.

"We've been fine with the weather and he's done everything that we've needed him to do at home. He's all set to go, and we'll find out at the weekend whether he gets three miles and one (furlong) or not," said the Pond House handler.

"You'd like to think he'll improve for Kempton as he did get a bit tired along the home straight. Hopefully that will have done him a lot of good."

Venetia Williams is well represented by the in-form Quartz De Thaix, who was narrowly beaten over course and distance in the Grade Three Majordomo Handicap in December.

Peter Deal, spokesman for his owners, the ROA Arkle Partnership, said: "It's a fascinating race, but our horse is in good form, I believe.

"He's been a revelation this season and his last run at Cheltenham was particularly good as he was just nabbed on the line."
