No Cheltenham for Topper

Trainer Kim Bailey has ruled out sending Harry Topper to the Cheltenham Festival this season.

Bailey will adopt a cautious approach with the promising five-year-old, who was a deeply impressive Grade Two winner at Newbury on Thursday.

The Gloucestershire handler told his website, www.kimbaileyracing.com: "Harry will have a good break now and run just once or twice more this season, but not at Cheltenham.

"He is not ready for that yet."
