Cash And Go: Faces British challenger and familiar foe on Sunday.

Cash And Go: Faces British challenger and familiar foe on Sunday.

Cash And Go will bid for a second Grade One victory in succession when he contests Sunday's Deloitte Novice Hurdle at Leopardstown.

Edward O'Grady's charge beat the much-vaunted Sous Les Cieux in the Future Champions Novice Hurdle over Christmas and faces him again at the weekend - along with British raider Captain Conan.

"Any horse that wins three in a row you've got to be delighted with, especially when one of those is a Grade One race," said O'Grady.

"He was only four at the beginning of the season so we specifically took our time, we didn't want to ask too much of him too quickly.

"We brought him along gradually and then ran him in the Grade One at Christmas, which he was fortunate enough to win.

"He's stepping up in trip slightly but I'm not worried about that. If he goes to Cheltenham it will be for the Supreme, that's the only one we put him in, we're not looking at going over further than this.

"Leopardstown seems to have its own micro climate but the ground will certainly be soft. He won a bumper on heavy so I'm not too worried about it."
