Dr Richard Newland: Still has two in the Sandown April feature
69 horses including Tidal Bay have been left in the bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown Park on Saturday 26th April at the latest acceptance stage.
Paul Nicholls' charge was an early faller in the Crabbie's Grand National at Aintree last week but could head to Ayr this weekend for the Coral Scottish National.
Aintree hero Pineay de Re was taken out of the Sandown race on Wednesday but his trainer Dr Richard Newland could still be represented by Ardkilly Witness and Mart Lane.
The Philip Hobbs-trained Roalco De Farges currently heads the market with sponsors.
Andrew Cooper, Head of Racing and Clerk of the Course, Sandown Park Racecourse, said: "We are looking forward to a competitive and exciting renewal of the bet365 Gold Cup. A combination of recent rain and selective watering means the going on the Jumps course at Sandown Park is currently Good to Soft, Good in places."
