Russell plots Night outingHeadlines
Tap Night

Tap Night is likely to have his second start over fences in the Scottish Future Champions Novices' Chase at Musselburgh on Sunday.

Lucinda Russell's six-year-old, bought by JP McManus after winning over hurdles earlier this season, won his only start over fences to date in some style.

He also holds an entry in the new Scottish Arkle Novices' Chase over two miles and the Grade One Scilly Isles at Sandown, but is likely to stay closer to home.

The trainer said: "He'll definitely run this weekend. I'm sure we'll look at running in the two-and-a-half-mile race just to see if he stays.

"Both the Musselburgh races look hot but we need to get him out, he's only had the one run over fences and he needs experience. The Sandown entry is just something to fall back on."

Russell has effectively ruled out a crack at the Cheltenham Gold Cup for her promising chaser Bold Sir Brian.

After two easy wins this season he travelled down to Cheltenham at the weekend, but took a tired fall at the final fence. He escaped unscathed, but the handler does not think a run in the blue riband would be wise on the back of that experience.

She went on: "We can't make any plans just yet, but he's been ridden today again. We have a physio that comes in and she's treated him and given him a massage.

"We just need to see how he is over the next few days and we'll have a sit down with his owner to make a plan. I don't think after that the Gold Cup would be the best plan. We'll be looking for races like the one he ran in at the weekend, something at a similar level."
