Having won for us at last seasons Cheltenham Festival, he’s very much been our newcomer as a Gold Cup contender this season, and this will give a really good guide as to his credentials. A belter of a race with Sizing John and Yorkhill stepping up to this trip, he we have faith in Road To Respect and at around 12/1 he rates a decent each way play. He did well to win on his return, reeling in a long time leader and also ran well when 2nd last time on ground softer than ideal and when racing right handed. He’s much more suited to a left handed track which he gets here and the ground should be much more suitable. A cracking race, but he holds decent claims and we’re very hopeful he’ll put himself right in the Gold Cup picture.
