BRIAN ELLISON has proved to be a man for all seasons in the training ranks and has a healthy team of chasers and hurdlers to carry on through the National Hunt season.
The Malton handler currently has Definitly Red as his standard bearer and the winner of the Grade 2 Many Clouds Chase at Aintree. He'll be looking towards a possible run in the Gold Cup at Cheltenham in March and will probably takes his place at Cheltenham rather than Doncaster this weekend. The weather may step in to determine where Definitly Red goes but he is one of several in the yard that gives Brian plenty of encouragements for the coming months.
Ellison said: “It has been a little up and down this season over jumps but Definitly Red has won well in top company for us and keeps the flag flying. We have a few pencilled for Cheltenham in March at this moment in time and let’s hope we have a nice team to go there.”
Brian kindly spoke to Tony Elves of ATR about those he hopes can strike for him in the months to come.
