Bryony Frost is confident Black Corton can continue his impressive run of form by winning the RSA Insurance Novices’ Chase.
The 22-year-old has enjoyed seven race wins and one at Grade One level aboard the seven-year-old Paul Nicholls-trained gelding, including two at the Cheltenham course.
And Frost is looking to make it a treble of victories at Prestbury Park when she returns for a Festival outing on Wednesday in the three-mile RSA Chase.
Frost said: “It’s been such a road up to it with all the excitement and build up. It will be great arriving and getting in the car park at Cheltenham on the day.
“People are saying it has got to come to an end and I say if you can predict that you should go get yourself a lottery ticket.
“They will go harder and faster at Cheltenham, but he has won round there. His confidence within himself is high and I will ride him with confidence to give him every chance.
“It is cool that people are getting behind him now because of the way he goes about things and how he achieves it.
“I don’t feel the pressure or anything for myself, but I feel it for him as I am just desperate to achieve success for him and make him even more of a superstar than he is.”
