At Fishers Cross: Likes it soft

Rebecca Curtis is hoping Cheltenham catches some of the forecast rain this week as she prepares leading contender At Fishers Cross for the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle.

The highly-progressive six-year-old booked his Festival ticket when proving too strong for highly-regarded The New One at Prestbury Park on trials day in January.

Galvanised by Tony McCoy, the six-year-old stayed on strongly after the last to account for the odds-on favourite by a neck in a thrilling finish.

That came on heavy ground over an extended two and a half miles and while he is in the Neptune over two-miles-five at the big meeting, the three-mile Albert Bartlett is his expected target.

Curtis said: "He's very good and came out of his last race really well.

"We are just hoping for a bit of rain there."
