Overturn Going For Gold

Donald McCain has confirmed that his dual purpose performer Overturn is likely to have his next race in the Ascot Gold Cup at the Royal meeting.

Second in the Champion Hurdle to Rock On Ruby, he then attempted to follow up his win in the Chester Cup of 12 months ago.

On ground softer than ideal and racing off a 7lb higher mark he put up a bold display only to be caught close home, ironically by his new stablemate Ile’De Re.

“Almost definitely he will got to Royal Ascot and it’s almost definitely for the Gold Cup,” said McCain on At The Races.

“We’ve got nothing to lose. He’ll turn up on the day and do what Overturn does. If that’s not good enough then fine, but he deserves his chance.

“He’s gone up to 112 now so we’ll go and hopefully get ground we can run on and see what happens.”

The Chester Cup winner, on the other hand, will attempt to emulate Overturn again in Newcastle.

“He’ll go for the Northumberland Plate. It would be lovely to win it again,” added McCain.
