Kingswell Theatre (black cap)Kingswell Theatre could return to Cheltenham for a tilt at the Glenfarclas Cross Country Handicap Chase on December 15.

The Michael Scudamore-trained eight-year-old made a winning return to action when registering a first victory over the unique course at the Gloucestershire track last month.

Scudamore said: "He has come back in great form from Cheltenham and, all being well, he will head back there later this month."

He went on: "He has gone up to a mark of 142, which makes life a bit tougher, but he seems to like the place and he did it very well there last time, so it is the sensible thing to go back there."

He added: "It was a win that gave Tom (Scudamore) a great buzz. He had a great thrill from it and it helped having such a willing partner.

"It did surprise me a little bit, but we knew how much he enjoyed it before. Not many in the years gone by have jumped out and made all.

"He is not the biggest horse in the world, but he dug deep and the attitude he showed at the end was terrier-like to stick his head back down."
