McCain mulls Al going for Gold

DONALD McCain remains reluctant to commit the talented but fragile Weird Al to the Hennessy Gold Cup after his win at Wetherby.

The injury plagued eight-year-old leapt to favouritism in some books for the Newbury showpiece with victory in the bet365 Charlie Hall Chase.

lIt was a fine comeback run and a dream debut for the McCain stable after moving from the Ian Williams yard.

l"I don't know about the Hennessy. I need to talk to the owners," said McCain.

l"He needs some managing so we have to do what's best for him. He's a class horse. It was a good performance yesterday."
