China Rock going straight to Cheltenham

Mouse Morris reported at Fairyhouse this afternoon that China Rock will swerve this Saturday’s Grade 2 Red Mills Chase after scoping badly on Monday.

China Rock, who finished fifth in last weekend’s Hennessy Gold Cup, was one of the nine original entries for the race but will not run in the Gowran Park showpiece.

Morris’s entries for Saturday had already been made before the results of the scope were known, and the nine-year-old will now head straight to Cheltenham where he holds a Gold Cup entry.
