Waley-Cohen talks up Long Run ahead of the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup
Long Run will be wearing cheekpieces in the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup according to owners, Robert Waley-Cohen. He was speaking to Betfred TV ahead of this year's Festival as Long Run looks to regain the crown he won back in 2011. If he managed it, Long Run would become only the second horse after Kauto Star to win the Cup in non-consecutive years. For those looking for good omens, Long Run returned to winning form on Boxing Day in the King George VI Chase, the same race he won ahead of the 2011 Gold Cup. He will line up alongside favourite, Bobs Worth as well as hotly tipped Sir Des Champs and Silviniaco Conti. It should be a fantastic race.
