Long Run lined up for Kelso

A couple of Nicky Henderson's stable stars light up the entries for Kelso's meeting on Thursday with My Tent Or Yours and Long Run engaged.

Dual King George and Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Long Run is entered in the new Ivan Straker Memorial Chase.

Straker is best remembered in racing circles as a successful owner but more importantly as the man who helped save the Grand National with his company, Seagram. He died in May this year.

"The fact this is run in memory of Ivan Streaker was in the back of both myself and Nicky's mind when we made the entry," said owner Robert Waley-Cohen. "If he doesn't run there we'll wait for Kempton on February 22."
