Colin Tizzard believes Lostintranslation can go on to be a Gold Cup contender in the future after winning the Dipper Novices' Chase at Cheltenham on January 1.

A pair of defeats at Newbury led to doubts over the son of Flemensfirth but he broke his duck for the campaign with a smart win at Prestbury Park, edging out Philip Hobbs' Defi Du Seuil.

Inevitably the win has sparked talk of another Festival run after finishing seventh in last year's Supreme Novices' Hurdle.

Tizzard currently has him in the RSA Chase but jockey Robbie Power has suggested he may be better suited to the JLT.

The Dorset-handler remains convinced he has made the right choice and believes a win in the spring could establish the seven-year-old as a future contender for the Festival's main event.

He said: "It was quite interesting to hear Robbie Power saying he should be a JLT horse (rather than RSA Chase) but, for me, it looked like his stamina kicked in.

"The owner said we ought to think about going to Leopardstown. That's news to me but it's a long time before the Cheltenham Festival and I would think he'll run again.

"We'll have a look at Leopardstown but it's just lovely to win here today. He's a lovely creature and hopefully he can go on and run in a Gold Cup one day."
