Harry Fry not ruling out Gold run for American

Fri 2 Mar 2018

Harry Fry is hoping Kelso's Premier Chase meeting is rearranged for American but, if not, there is still the option of supplementing him for the Timico Gold Cup at Cheltenham.

The talented but fragile chaser bounced back to his best to finish second to Definitly Red in the Cotswold Chase at Cheltenham in January.

While he must have soft ground, all the current snow and forecast rain is giving Fry hope that he may just get his conditions at Prestbury Park.

"It was a shame that we couldn't run American at Kelso this weekend and we're hoping that gets rearranged," Fry told his Betway blog.

"If not, there's an outside chance that he will be supplemented for the Gold Cup on the Saturday before if we could be sure that conditions would come up soft.

"The chances of getting soft ground on the Friday are probably pretty slim, but you've got all the snow to melt in and then the forecast looks unsettled so you never know.

"He's in the Ultima Handicap Chase on the Tuesday and also has an entry in the Midlands National, although it's unlikely we'd run him off top-weight on really bad ground, so we've got a few options."
