Crus plans on hold after flopHeadlines
Grands Crus

All plans for Grands Crus are currently "on hold", according to David Pipe.

The grey looked set for a big season this term and was a short-priced favourite for the Paddy Power Gold Cup at Cheltenham in November, but was pulled up and subsequently had a breathing operation.

He performed with great credit in the King George at Kempton on Boxing Day, finishing third, and Pipe was confident he would strip fitter in the Argento Chase last weekend. However, he was never really travelling and was pulled up some way out.

Pipe wrote on his blog on www.davidpipe.com: "I was hoping for a really big run from him - the very testing ground would have been softer than ideal but I would not dream of offering that up as an excuse for this lacklustre effort.

"He returned feeling sorry for himself and was quiet on Sunday.

"He will be freshened up now and all plans are on hold."
