Stumptown can add his name to the short list of Irish-trained winners of the Coral Gold Cup at Newbury if the Berkshire track survives its early morning inspection.

Irish-trained horses dominate the big races currently, especially at the Cheltenham Festival, but the historic race still known to many at the ‘Hennessy’ has largely proved elusive to the raiders.

The great Arkle won it twice in the 1960s but the 2017 victory of Willie Mullins-trained Total Recall was the first success for an Irish-trained runner since Bright Highway in 1980.

Stumptown’s jumping has sometimes hindered him but there is plenty to suggest that the gelding, who is a 9-1 shot with Betfair, has some improvement in him.

The fact classy Ahoy Senor runs under top weight of 12st holds Stumptown’s weight down with jockey Danny Mullins weighing out at a featherweight of 10st 2lb, a big plus in a race always run at an exacting tempo.
