3 pts win WHO DARES WINS  5/1 ( at least 9 firms)
Gerry Fielden Hdle

This one is a massively interesting runner here. He started at only 10/1 for last season'e Triumph but ran too bad to be true and finished well beaten. He ran a cracker on his hurdles comeback at Chepstow, even allowing for the fact that he would have been straight in condition after running on the level. He only got as far as the second flight last time but there is no reason why things should not fall right for him today and off only a 1 lb higher than the Chepstow run is sure to give an excellent account of himself.

Won + 15 pts

3 pts win UN TEMPS POUR TOUT 10/1 ( at least 8 firms)
Hennessy Gold Cup

One of the most appealing events in the sport for anticipation and buzz and this is certainly an up to standard renewal .There are three runners in today's field that you could envisage progressing enough to turn into serious  Cheltenham Gold Cup contenders, Un Temps Pour Tout, Blaklion and Native River.

Un Temps Pour Tout is  2-0 down in his two encounters with Native River over fences - including one at this meeting last November. However, when both on song the Pipe horse travels like the sort of animal that wins this event with Native River often having to be driven at a relatively early stage. If he is turned out in the same heart as when winning the 3m 1f handicap at the festival then he appeals as the most likely winner of this. He's 10 lb in the ratings than that day but he had plenty in hand and there could be plenty more to come.

Lost - 3 pts
