Testing ground all winter has increased Alan’s frustration, but we still celebrated six winners last week and Talkischeap may well have clinched a trip to next month’s Cheltenham Festival when overcoming unsuitable going at Newbury on Saturday.

Alan said:”I was very worried about the ground, and we left it until the last minute on Friday morning to decide whether to run Talkischeap, who has never enjoyed the soft and will definitely be more effective on a better surface.

“So it was very pleasing to see him win so well at Newbury, especially as we had one run a shocker for owner Charles Dingwall there the previous day.

“Talkischeap will probably now get an entry for the Coral Hurdle, but we also have him in the Albert Bartlet Hurdle and that would be a serious consideration.”
