Racing news Sunnyhill in Gold Cup contention

Sunnyhill in Gold Cup contention27th February 2013

Jonjo O'Neill has raised the possibility of Sunnyhillboy running in the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Although not expected to be a contender to retain the title after Synchronised's victory for the stable last year, it is more part of his preparation for the John Smith's Grand National. While the Gold Cup hero lost his life at Aintree, Sunnyhillboy was denied victory by only a nose. He made a promising reappearance over hurdles at Haydock but was pulled up at Warwick last month.

"I've got him in the Pertemps, but there will be 28 runners there and I wouldn't want anything to happen to him," said O'Neill.
