Roberto Goldback: Ascot hopeful
Last year's winner Roberto Goldback is among 23 entries in the United House Gold Cup Handicap Chase at Ascot on Saturday.
The 11-year-old was having his first race for Nicky Henderson after his move from Dessie Hughes in Ireland when beating Duke Of Lucca by nine lengths last November.
Henderson has a second string to his bow in Triolo D'Alene, who was last seen winning at Huntingdon at the end of April.
Paul Nicholls has two possibles in Rolling Aces, who has an alternative engagement at Down Royal the same day, and There's No Panic, while Philip Hobbs can choose from last year's runner-up Duke Of Lucca and Quinz.
Other interesting entries include David Bridgwater's Wyck Hill, Buddy Bolero from David Pipe's yard, the Harry Fry-trained Opening Batsman and Nigel Twiston-Davies's Same Difference.
The sole Irish entry is Spring Heeled from Jim Culloty's Mallow stable.
