Didtheyleaveuoutto
The JP McManus-owned five-year-old Didtheyleaveuoutto made a big impression when scoring on his racecourse debut at Lingfield in November and left several winners trailing in his wake when following up in a Listed contest at Ascot last month.

He is a best priced 8-1 for his Cheltenham Festival assignment and trainer Nick Gifford sees no reason to give his charge another run between now and March.

He told At The Races: " He's going to go straight to Cheltenham. Barry (Geraghty) said at the time (at Ascot) we didn't need to run him again because he's so professional. 

"He's a good ground horse, so t here's no point dragging him through the mud at this time of year. 

"We'll freshen him up and go straight there."
