Pipe has plenty of entries, but the master of Pond House plans to have just one runner – in the big one.
"Cartmel have done a brilliant job with this meeting with the prize money they are putting up and I shall certainly be running either Shoegazer or Decoy in the Cumbria Crystal Trophy.
“At the moment, I am leaning towards Shoegazer, who won’t mind the ground however it turns out and is in good form as he won very nicely at Southwell last Sunday.
“The problem is that he does have a lot of weight, but he is an improving horse and I think he will be the one representing me” said Pipe.
Our annual Cheltenham Festival Preview Night, at Cartmel Racecourse, will be held on Thursday 9th March – commencing at 7.00pm.
2,000 Early Bird tickets will go on sale at half price on tuesday 17th January.
