Katenko in Gold Cup frame

Venetia Williams is to hand Saturday's impressive Sandown winner Katenko an entry in the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup in March.

The seven-year-old French import was having just his third start for Williams, having previously gone close at Ascot when runner-up to Wyck Hill.

"He's come out of the race absolutely fine and the owner may get a surprise but I am going to put him in the Gold Cup," said Herefordshire-based Williams.

"He will go up the best part of a stone in the handicap."
