Paul Nicholls Video Exclusive: The latest on my stable stars and upcoming entries
Get all the latest stable news from Paul after another great weekend for the yard...
"Paul's one to watch is Give Me A Copper at Sandown in the 3m Handicap Chase."
Keep up to speed with the leading trainer in UK jumps racing including quotes on the form of the yard's star runners and all the latest on his upcoming entries.
Paul had two good winners last weekend with Cotswold Chase victor Frodon stealing the headlines after his Cheltenham win. That horse is now "Gold Cup bound" according to Paul, although the Ryanair Chase remains an option. Worryingly for Frodon's rivals Paul is sure "he will improve for the run."
Dynamite Dollars was a Grade 2 winner at Doncaster and is now "Arkle Bound."
Paul is likely to have two leading contenders for the Gold Cup with the 'dangerous' Clan Des Obeaux also going for the blue riband chase event of the year. Clan Des Obeaux is entered in the Denman Chase at Newbury on February 9.
Sandown and Newbury entries
The major meeting this weekend takes place at Sandown on Saturday February 2 and Paul has a few entered.
Grand Annual winner Le Prezien and Dolos both go in the 2m Handicap Chase. The pair are in good form but appear to be high enough in the weights.
Casko D'Airy and Kapcorse are being aimed at the 2m7 Handicap Hurdle. The former needs a few to come out to get in. Wincanton novice hurdle winner Kapcorse is stepping up in grade but is liked in the yard. Brio Conti may run, too.
Give Me A Copper and El Bandit go for the 3m Handicap Chase. Give Me A Copper has come off an injury, is ready to run and could just be "one to follow" through the spring. El Bandit needs to put a couple of bad runs behind him.
Looking further ahead, Paul has the second favourite in the Betfair Hurdle. Getaway Trump, 5/1 to win at Newbury on Saturday February 9. The Challow Hurdle runner-up is in great form and will be "in top order" for the day. Mont Des Avaloirs is also entered
Finally, Paul's one to watch is Give Me A Copper at Sandown in the 3m Handicap Chase.
