Module set for lift-off after fighting back from injury blow

By Anita Chambers

Module can begin to make up for lost time with victory in the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup at Cheltenham today.

A couple of seasons ago the nine-year-old was mixing it with the very best, with his victory in the 2014 Game Spirit at Newbury and his third place in the Queen Mother Champion Chase the following month earning him a rating in the 160s.

Not much has gone right for Tom George's charge since, with some uninspiring performances followed by an 18-month lay-off due to injury.

However, there was definitely promise in his Cheltenham comeback last month, running well for a long way in the Shloer Chase before being found out against sharper rivals.

He was beaten 22 lengths by Fox Norton that day and the handicapper has duly dropped him to a mark of 149, which looks very enticing indeed.

My Tent Or Yours disappointed on his reappearance at Haydock but can get back on the right track in the International Hurdle.
