In depth

Verdict

Everything fell into place for SILVER CONCORDE in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham and he probably had a bit in hand as he came off a true line in the closing stages. The Mullins' trio Shaneshill, Black Hercules and Killultagh Vic - second, fourth and sixth - take him on again and the latter could come out best of those today as he met trouble in-running, though the winner looks smart. Value At Risk was further behind. Last month's Limerick winner Aminabad also represents the Mullins team while Fine Article looked potentially decent when scoring at Gowran. Seven Nation Army won a Listed contest at Ascot in December but looks held on a line through Newbury scorer Definitly Red and lacks the scope of fellow UK raiders Jollyallan, Some Buckle and Aniknam. Riviera Sun justified favouritism at Down Royal but will need a lot more here.
