Paul Nolan is looking forward to seeing Latest Exhibition bid for Cheltenham Festival glory in the Weatherbys Champion Bumper.

Runner-up on his racecourse debut at Limerick in December, the six-year-old went one better in impressive style at Naas last month to earn himself a trip across the Irish Sea.

The son of Oscar is a 33-1 shot for his Festival assignment, but Nolan believes he could outrun those odds.

“Latest Exhibition won well at Naas, and hopefully he’ll go to Cheltenham. He’s sound and well, and I hope he will give a good account of himself,” said the Enniscorthy-based trainer.

“He galloped through the line very well. He’s a six-year-old, so it shouldn’t faze him, and hopefully he’ll run a respectable race.”

Another Nolan inmate bound for the Cotswolds is Discorama.

The six-year-old holds multiple engagements at Prestbury Park, but Nolan is favouring the National Hunt Chase as things stand – with leading amateur Barry O’Neill in line for the ride.

Nolan added: “Discorama is entered in the Grade Ones at Cheltenham, and he’s also in the four-miler. More than likely, he’ll go for the four-miler.”
