Bold Sir Brian: Treated by physio

The Gold Cup is off the agenda, but Bold Sir Brian is thankfully none the worse for his crunching fall at Cheltenham.

Thankfully the talented chaser escaped unscathed but Russell does not think a run in the blue riband would be wise on the back of that experience.

"We can't make any plans just yet but he's been ridden today again," said Russell.

"We have a physio that comes in and she's treated him and given him a massage.

"We just need to see how he is over the next few days and we'll have a sit down with his owner to make a plan.

"I don't think after that the Gold Cup would be the best plan.

"We'll be looking for races like the one he ran in at the weekend, something at a similar level."
