Pendra OK for Coral - LongsdonHeadlines
Charlie Longsdon

Trainer Charlie Longsdon feels the Coral Cup would suit Pendra best out of his three options at the Cheltenham Festival.

Bought by JP McManus after chasing home Melodic Rendezvous in the Tolworth Hurdle at Sandown, the five-year-old has been kept fresh since then.

The first foal of the smart Mariah Rollins, he also has entries in the County Hurdle and the Martin Pipe conditional jockeys' race.

"Pendra worked in Lambourn (on Tuesday morning) and he went very well," said the Chipping Norton handler.

"I hope he'll be spot-on for a handicap at the Festival. I'd like to go for the Coral Cup, but it depends what else Mr McManus has for that race.

"All he does is stay - everything he has done over two miles has been a bonus, so two-five should suit.

"The ground has been slowing everything down this winter, which has been a bonus.

"I think he's well handicapped on 139 as Melodic Rendezvous is now 150 and it wasn't as if he beat us by 10 lengths, it was just over four (lengths).

"He's only had three runs over hurdles and we decided against another run for him to save his mark.

"AP (McCoy) has been and ridden him and he likes him. I think he's my best chance of the week."
