Could Cheltenham beckon for Clonmel winner?

Could Cheltenham beckon for Clonmel winner?

Pat Fahy is hoping Mount Gunnery will make the cut for the Festival Novices' Handicap Chase at Cheltenham following a cosy success at Clonmel.

The eight-year-old made it third-time lucky as he landed the Kilsheelan Beginners Chase having finished second and third on his first two outings over fences.

Fahy is now looking towards the two-and-a-half-mile Listed event on the opening day of the Festival, although Mount Gunnery also holds an entry in the Grade One JLT Novices' Chase.

He said: "That was great and I'm delighted with him. Conditions suited but he needed to win today as I'm thinking about running him in the 0-140 handicap chase at Cheltenham.

"He'll be entered and if he gets in, I wouldn't mind going over with him. He has had three quick runs and will have a lovely freshen up now."
