Galopin Des Champs (7/5), A Plus Tard (4/1), Bravemansgame (6/1), Noble Yeats (14/1), Ahoy Senor (14/1), Stattler (16/1), Minella Indo (20/1), Conflated (22/1), Protektorat (25/1), Hewick (40/1), Royale Pagaille (50/1), Sounds Russian (50/1), Eldorado Allen (100/1)
GALOPIN DES CHAMPS would be unbeaten over fences but for falling at last year's Festival. The way he forged clear in the Irish Gold Cup suggests the slightly longer trip this afternoon should be within range and he's very much the one to beat. Bravemansgame is another who has suffered only one defeat over fences and is feared most after his impressive King George success. Last year's National Hunt Chase winner Stattler will relish the return to a longer trip and looks best of the rest.
