Trevor Hemmings harbours ambition plans for his chaser Cloudy Dream, runner-up in the Shloer Chase at the November Meeting at Cheltenham.
The Preston North End owner is keen to see the grey take his chance in the Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup.
Cloudy Dream finished second to Fox Norton in Sunday’s Shloer Chase more than ample consolation following an entry mix-up involving the horse at the start of last week.
He was meant to be put into the BetVictor Gold Cup, but was placed into the earlier longer chase backed by the same sponsor.
“When the mistake was realised he went into the Shloer Chase.
Trainer Malcolm Jefferson said: “As things have turned out I’m happy he wasn’t able to run on Saturday.
“It wouldn’t have suited him carrying 11st 12lb in a hot race like that on such testing ground.
“I’m really pleased with the way he’s run.
“His owner Trevor Hemmings would like us to think about aiming him for the Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup.”
