Nicholls targets Gold Cup success

Trainer Paul Nicholls hopes for success on consecutive days of the Cheltenham Festival after Big Buck's claimed a record-breaking fourth World Hurdle on Thursday and with Kauto Star competing in Friday's Gold Cup.

Nicholls says Big Buck's was "magic" but dismisses comparisons with Kauto Star, saying it is just an "amazing feat" for the 12-year-old to be competing in the twilight of his career.

Defending champion Long Run and Kauto Star head the fifteen horses competing in the feature race at 1520 GMT.
