Coneygree to miss Newbury Gold Cup
24 Nov 2015 18:06
Cheltenham Gold Cup hero Coneygree will miss Saturday's Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury after failing to sparkle in a schooling session on Tuesday.
His participation in the prestigious handicap chase had been under a cloud following a small setback but the hope over the last few days was that he might be able to run.
This schooling session was the acid test and if he came through the exercise, for which he was partnered by his regular jockey Nico de Boinville, he was due to take his chance.
Unfortunately, trainer Mark Bradstock and his wife, Sara, were not happy enough with his jumping to let him take his chance.
"I'm afraid we're not running. He just didn't school well enough. He overreached which he's never done before which suggests he's not comfortable," said Sara Bradstock.
