Pauling set to launch Great bid

Ben Pauling will run all three of his entries in the StanJames.com Greatwood Hurdle at Cheltenham on Sunday.

A Hare Breath: One of Ben Pauling's Greatwood trio

Leoncavallo, A Hare Breath and Cyrius Moriviere are all set to represent the Gloucestershire-based handler at his local track.

Formerly trained by John Ferguson, Leoncavallo is still owned by the Bloomfields operation and was second to Sceau Royal on his return to action.

A Hare Breath was aimed at the County Hurdle last season, but narrowly missed the cut and burst a blood vessel when running in a consolation race at Kempton.

Cyrius Moriviere won at Huntingdon and Doncaster last season.

"All three of mine are going to run," said Pauling.

"If I had to chose I'd say A Hare Breath is probably the best handicapped but whatever he does he'll be going chasing next, I think.

"Leoncavallo is 5lb well-in as he went up for being stood in his box when Sceau Royal won the Elite Hurdle last week.

"We'll pop the tongue-tie back on Cyrius Moriviere and he blew the cobwebs away the other week."
