Topic: Coneygree team bullish ahead of Newbury
ทางเข้า sbo Mark Bradstock is confident Coneygree can get his career back on track in the Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury on Saturday The 2015 Cheltenham Gold Cup hero will have to concede weight all round as he bids to provide his trainer with a second victory in the race following the victory of his half-brother Carruthers in 2011. Coneygree has suffered more than his fair share of problems since his career-defining success two and a half years ago. He was most recently pulled up after suffering an over-reach in the Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby, but connections believe he is back on song. Bradstock said: "We ทางเข้า sbo think he is in very good form. We thought he was in fantastic form going to Wetherby, but it didn't happen. "There is no point crying over spilt milk. It's frustrating, but worse things have happened. He's still here and it's all systems go. "It is a hell of a weight to carry (11st 12lb), but where else do you go? "He goes a hell of a lick and if he gets his jumping going it will be great." Paul Nicholls landed successive renewals as a jockey aboard Broadheath (1986) and Playschool (1987) before scoring as a trainer with Strong Flow (2003) and twice with ทางเข้า sbo the great Denman (2007 and 2009). This year's chief hope for the Ditcheat handler is Present Man, who has won his last two starts under leading conditional Bryony Frost, who keeps the ride. Nicholls, who also saddles Braqueur D'Or, said: "Present Man has astonished us, to be honest. "Two years ago Andy Stewart and Paul Barber owned him and they sold him to the Woodhouses saying he would be lucky to a small race around Wincanton. "It is a like a lot of horses - he has just got older and stronger. I don't know where the improvement has come from, but his run the other day gives him every chance.
