Fresh from his win in the BetVictor Handicap Chase, Un Beau Roman looked relaxed today as he led his stablemates up for a morning run out on the all-weather gallops.
Un Beau secured Paul Henderson Racing's biggest ever race win last month, pipping the favourite in a thrilling finish at Cheltenham, live on Channel 4 Racing.
Un Beau faces a stiff test when he returns to action, again at Cheltenham, for the International meeting on 10th December. With his recent form in mind, we are looking forward to seeing him run and hope he can stand up to expectations.
Paul Henderson Racing has a second runner at Cheltenham on Saturday; Turban is in the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup Handicap Chase. Turban, who was brought over from Ireland earlier this year, is starting for the second time since joining the Whitsbury yard. The 9-year-old was pulled up first time out at Uttoxeter in November.
Whatever the outcome, race days at Cheltenham remind us why we got into racing in the first place and we can't wait for what is sure to be a fantastic day's racing!
