A Dorset trained horse has a good chance of victory in Cheltenham's 'Gold Cup' for Amateur riders.

Jack Barber rides 2nd favourite 'Chapoturgeon' in the Foxhunters Chase.

It's trained at Seaborough, near Beaminster at Paul Nicholls' satelitte yard by 'point-to-point' expert Richard Barber.

The horse was second in the race last year.

They're off at around 4 o'clock, the race immediately after the Cheltenham Gold Cup.
