Kentford takes aim at QuevegaHeadlines
Kentford Grey Lady

Kentford Grey Lady will stay amongst her own sex at next month's Cheltenham Festival following an excellent run in defeat in last month's Cleeve Hurdle at Cheltenham.

Emma Lavelle was keen to find out whether her star mare would be up to running in the Ladbrokes World Hurdle by contesting the Cleeve, and while she ran a superb race to finish third, beaten a little over six lengths, the Andover handler has decided against a crack at the staying crown.

Kentford Grey Lady will instead head for the OLBG Mares' Hurdle, having beat all bar four-time winner Quevega in the race last season.

"She has come out of the Cleeve in super form and we were all really happy with how she ran," said Lavelle.

"Off the back of that, although there is no getting away with the fact she ran a fantastic race, she is not going to win a World Hurdle, so we're going to aim for the mares' race.

"She hasn't had much racing this season, so she will probably go to Haydock first for the Rendlesham Hurdle, and then on to Cheltenham from there.

"They should go a good gallop at Cheltenham, which will suit her.

"It is no easy task to beat Quevega - no horse has beaten her in a long time - but she's a year older now and we'll give it a go."
