Nicholls Eyeing More Saturday Success


 Bt James Burn Racing Post 24 NOV 2014 


The PAUL NICHOLLS, trained Rocky Creek is on target for the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury.
The eight-year-old - beaten by Triolo D'Alene in the Hennessy 12 months ago - was second on his comeback run in the JNWine.com Champion Chase at Down Royal this month.


He is generally 10-1 for Saturday's Hennessy, a race Nicholls has won twice as a jockey and three times as a trainer.
"He ran very well in the Grade 1 at Down Royal and has improved from that," said Nicholls.
"Since Down Royal he's grafted, is in good shape and in a good place with himself. I'm looking forward to the Hennessy.
"He took an awful lot of getting fit and just got tired at Down Royal, but Road To Riches had had two runs."
