Warren Greatrex sends Western Ryder straight to the Festival
The five-year-old, who is part-owned by golfers Lee Westwood and Darren Clarke, demonstrated his potential at Ascot last month with victory in a Listed bumper.
The Lambourn handler said: "We will go straight to Cheltenham with him. He has come out of the race well.
"I don't think we need to run him again. We will now get him fresh and well and go straight there.
"I am not keen on the race, but it is right up his street.
"He is tough and travels well and has got a really good turn of foot."
