Dynaste's Cheltenham Options Left Open By Pipe

David Pipe yet again insisted that there has been no decision on what race his exciting novice chaser Dynaste will run in at the Cheltenham Festival, but the Pond House handler and stable jockey Tom Scudamore feel he will be tough to beat in whatever task he is handed.

Having made an exemplary start to his chasing career, the grey showed his class when trouncing a decent field in the Feltham Novices' Chase at Kempton Park on Boxing Day and he was duly cut to clear ante-post favourite for the RSA Chase, but Pipe tweeted today that they still haven't decided whether to take that route.  Pipe said: "Despite speculation to the contrary, there still has been no decision made about Dynaste's target @CheltenhamRaces."

He has three entries for the Cheltenham Festival, which gets under way next Tuesday with the RSA looking the most likely option, but the 2m 4f Jewson Novices' Chase is also on the radar, whilst he still holds a place in the World Hurdle, which looks a wide open contest this term, with Big Buck's no featuring amongst the list.

However, many believe that he will opt for the 3m RSA, as the way he scorched round the three miles at Kempton Park over the festive period suggest that he could well look to improve on stablemate Grands Crus' effort 12 months ago and look to win what is an intriguing division.

Boston Bob could well be one of the leading Irish contenders, whilst the likes of Unioniste and Back In Focus add some decent depth to what could be a race full of potential improvers and if arguably one of the highlights of the second day.
