Bobs Worth: Pleasing connections ahead of Cheltenham

Nicky Henderson has delivered an upbeat bulletin about current Cheltenham Gold Cup favourite, Bobs Worth.

The reigning champion has not been seen out since landing the Lexus Chase at Leopardstown over Christmas and the master of Seven Barrows described himself as happy with his preparations en route to this year's Festival.

Speaking at Doncaster, Henderson said: "I'm pleased with Bob. Thank goodness we got the race into him in Ireland because I would have hated to have to run him at Cheltenham the other week in that ground. "Since the Lexus he has been gradually building back up and now we'll start to get some serious work into him.

"I was relieved as much as pleased with his run in Ireland, after the Betfair I was really worried but he showed everything we know he is in the Lexus.

"In the Gold Cup he'll also have the advantage of the hill which we know he adores."
