In-form Harrington chasing more prize-money with Rock The World
Jessica Harrington is hoping Rock The World, who delivered a career-best performance when landing the Grand Annual Chase at Cheltenham last month, can pick up some more prize-money in the feature contest.
"He's in great form and is a fresh horse as he's had only three runs since the beginning of October," said the trainer.
"It's a big step up in class for him and, realistically, we'll be delighted if he can earn some prize-money."
Elliott runners facing tough task
Gordon Elliott admitted his two runners The Game Changer and Realt Mor are facing a tough task.
While Rock The World was on Monday around a 16-1 chance, The Game Changer could be backed at 66-1 and his stablemate 100-1.
"They are big outsiders and are very much up against it in this sort of company," said title-chasing Elliott.
"If one of them can earn some prize-money we'll be happy."
