Curtis not cross about groundHeadlines
At Fishers Cross

The prospect of quicker ground at Cheltenham in March holds no particular fears for Rebecca Curtis and her star novice At Fishers Cross.

The JP McManus-owned six-year-old won his fourth race of the season in the Grade Two Neptune Novices' Hurdle over two miles and five furlongs, beating the highly-touted The New One in a thrilling finish. At Fishers Cross will now step back up to three miles for the Albert Bartlett at the Festival, for which he is a best-priced 6-1 favourite with Ladbrokes.

"He's been great. He had a couple of problems which affected his jumping early on but we seem to have them sorted now and he's progressing the right way," Curtis told At The Races.

"I'd say he'll definitely run over three miles. He was meant to go to Doncaster over three miles for the Albert Bartlett trial but with that called off Cheltenham was the only graded race left.

"He's really good (after the race), I thought he might be tired but he's eaten up well.

"All of his form is on soft to heavy ground but that's not to say he won't go on better ground."
