Racing news Paintball chasing Imperial double

Paintball chasing Imperial double27th February 2013

Paintball is on target to defend his Paddy Power Imperial Cup crown at Sandown on Saturday week.

The six-year-old sprang a 20-1 surprise under Noel Fehily last year, sprinting up the hill to win by nearly five lengths.

Connections decided against going for the bonus at Cheltenham and sent him to Aintree instead but he was well beaten there and in four subsequent races. However, trainer Charlie Longsdon believes a further breathing operation will help him get back to his best.
