Paul Nolan: Newbury aims

Sky Bet

Paul Nolan is tempted to run Joncol in the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury in November.

The eight-year-old, who has won two Grade One races in his career only ran three times last season and requires soft ground to be seen at his best.

He finished third in the Lexus Chase for the second successive year but was disappointing in defence of his Irish Hennessy crown.

Nolan has earmarked the Thurles Chase on November 3 as a starting point, after a which a decision on whether he makes his first trip to England will be made.

"Joncol looks in great form," said Nolan.

"There's a conditions chase at Thurles that he can go for the first week of November and after he's run in that we'll make a decision whether he runs in the Hennessy at Newbury."
