Quinn keen to take Winter Risk
Trainer John Quinn is hoping the 5lb penalty Calculated Risk incurred for winning at Sandown on Saturday will ensure him a run at Cheltenham.
Although Calculated Risk still needs several horses to come out to guarantee him a place in Wednesday's Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle, he is much closer to making the cut thanks to his success at the Esher track.
"After pulling out of his stable this morning 100% sound and having eaten up we have decided to aim him at Wednesday's Fred Winter Hurdle at Cheltenham," the North Yorkshire handler told www.johnquinnracing.co.uk.
"The 5lb penalty that he has picked up as a result of the win will hopefully be enough to get him into the race.
"Terry Warner bought the horse after he won at Doncaster and I was pleased to train my first winner for him yesterday."
