Ground key to Hand Festival raid
26 Feb 2012

Richard Lee warned Knock A Hand will not be heading to the Cheltenham Festival unless there is cut in the ground.

The seven-year-old stretched his unbeaten record over hurdles to four when landing a handicap at Newbury earlier this month and while his trainer is excited abouthe future, Knock A Hand will remain in his box unless the weather changes.

"He seems in good form, but we're not absolutely sure where he'll go next," said Lee.

"He's a bit special and unless we get some rain and the ground changes, he won't be running anywhere.

"He has options at Cheltenham but unless he gets his ground, he won't be going there or anywhere else.

"I think most of the country could do with some rain. In the south east they are talking about it being a drought."
