A Lexus romp at Leopardstown put all lingering doubt that the reigning Gold Cup champ was past it. If ever a performance stated ‘I ain’t going anywhere boys’ this was it as Bobs Worth sprinted past solid yardstick First Lieutenant and the lightly-raced dark horse Rubi Ball to trumpet his return.

Not that he was ever really away but the ever-tearful Nicky Henderson knew that he needed to put in a big performance to silence the doubters after his Haydock no-show

While all the plaudits fell to Cue Card that day – his petrol tank emptied alarmingly quickly in the King George over Kempton’s relatively flat three-mile course. So whether it can hold out over 3m 2f up Cleeve Hill is the million dollar question.

Silviniaco Conti got all Malky MacKay-like when showing his mettle for the scrap in the King George and heads straight for the Gold Cup. Paul Nicholls’ slugger could give Bobs Worth plenty to think about on March 14.



Less was more with Bobs Worth last season as he became the first Cheltenham Gold Cup winner for 22 years not to have raced in the same calendar year when trouncing Sir Des Champs.

A repeat of his Lexus performance at his favourite track could see him become the first back-to-back Cheltenham Gold Cup winner since Best Mate in 2003/04.

 Stat: Bobs Worth has never been beaten in five races at Cheltenham
