Keighley faces weighty decision
Martin Keighley is not keen to run Havingotascoobydo in the Paddy Power Gold Cup next month from out of the handicap.
The seven-year-old made his seasonal return at Cheltenham last weekend and was in the process of running a big race before giving the second last a big brush.
He was allowed to coast home in his own time when his chance had gone and Keighley remains convinced there is a big prize in him.
"He came down the hill looking like he was going to win," said Keighley.
"Unfortunately he belted the second last and blew up, he just needed the run.
"I think he'll come on a heck of a lot from that and we'll look forward to his next run.
"He's got an entry in the Paddy Power but I wouldn't be keen on running him from out of the weights.
"If we don't go there there are two identical races for him at Ascot the following week."
Havingotascoobydo is 14-1 with the sponsors for the first major handicap of the National Hunt season.
