Trainer said on Sunday that he would probably swerve Cheltenham for Aintree.

"We've got to have a chat with the owners and make a decision but I think we're probably going to swerve Cheltenham and maybe the plan will be to go to Aintree.

"That's a flat track and two miles five, they go a nice gallop and you can get into more of a rhythm. As Will said, you can flick through the fences at Aintree, whereas at Cheltenham if you don't get into a rhythm and don't jump you can be in trouble.

"It's a stiff test round there, it's three miles two and if the ground comes up soft it's a slog. He's a very strong-travelling horse and two miles five round Aintree would suit him a lot better."

However, his price shortened across the boards today. Did anybody hear anything?
