MINELLA INDO (3.05 Kempton, nap)

He landed a quality renewal of the Cheltenham Gold Cup in March when jumping brilliantly and pulling out more up the notorious hill. He wasn’t asked too many questions when third on comeback at Down Royal last time and will be fit and ready for this. He goes on any ground and can land another big victory for Henry De Bromhead and Rachael Blackmore.

SILVER HALLMARK (2.10 Wetherby, nb)

He signed off last season with a Grade 2 win at Haydock and should relish this step up to three miles. He looked very rusty on return at Carlisle last time when fourth in a Listed contest. He travelled well for a long way before tiring late. That’s understandable after nine months off and he’ll be primed for today.

DANNY KIRWAN (1.20 Kempton, treble)

He’s had his moments over hurdles and showed loads of promise when second on his chasing debut at Cheltenham last time. That effort was all the better because he jumped to the right a couple of times and lost ground. Much of his best form has come on a speedy track like Kempton and he can take a big step forward here.
