Agrapart with L'Ami Serge

Agrapart is set to step up to three miles in the Sun Bets Stayers' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival but may not run again before the big meeting in March.

The six-year-old propelled himself into the Cheltenham reckoning when beating L'Ami Serge by a head in the Relkeel Hurdle over an extended two and a half miles on New Year's Day.

Winner of the Betfair Hurdle over two miles at Newbury last year, Agrapart is now due to take another hike in distance.

Trainer Nick Williams said: "He has got a Stayers' Hurdle entry. We are going up in trip. We probably won't see him until then. If I have my way he won't run again before the Stayers' Hurdle."

Williams also confirmed Tea For Two, who is entered in the Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup, is set to be seen next at Exeter after finishing fourth of five runners in the King George VI Chase.

He added: "Tea For Two goes to Exeter in the middle of February for one of those three-mile conditions races."
