Hennessy aim for Curtis’ Boy

O'Faolains Boy will be aimed at Newbury

The nine-year-old was sidelined for over 18 months after winning the 2014 RSA Chase, but looked as good as ever when scoring on his second run after his comeback at Newbury last December.

He failed to reproduce that level of form after the new year and was last seen finishing seventh of nine in the Cheltenham Gold Cup, but Curtis, who enjoyed three winners at Chepstow over the weekend, reports her charge to be in rude health.

She said: "O'Faolains Boy has come back really well. He will go for the Hennessy.

"We will have to get a run into him before that. It could mean having a spin over hurdles."
