Grands Crus: Done for the season

David Pipe has decided to call time on Grands Crus' season following his disappointing display at the Cheltenham Festival.

The grey was considered one of the bankers of the week as he aimed to make it four out of four over fences in the RSA Chase, but he weakened quickly before the turn for home to finish fourth.

Pipe will now give his stable star a well-earned break before bringing him back for next season.

"He's going to be finished for the season. He didn't quite scope right but his blood is fine and we're calling it a day," said the Pond House handler.
