Our columnist is expecting a big run from Bristol De Mai in the Magners Cheltenham Gold Cup - check out his thoughts on his three Friday rides.
I thought Janika was my best chance of a winner on Thursday and he ran a huge race to finish second in the Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate Handicap Chase.
We were beaten by Siruh Du Luc, again, after he touched us off on Festival Trials Day, but I was very pleased with my horse. He travelled and jumped great and was closing him down after the last. I'm sure there are big days ahead for him.
There's one on Friday for Bristol De Mai in the Magners Cheltenham Gold Cup and I think he has a real chance. The key to this horse is keeping him fresh and he's just that having not raced since an uncharacteristic fall in the King George on Boxing Day.
We've beaten plenty of these before - admittedly at Haydock - but Bristol De Mai has good form at Cheltenham too and I think he's capable of running a huge race here.
So is Adjali in the JCB Triumph Hurdle. He wasn't at his best behind Fakir D'Oudaries here last time but had previously made Quel D'Estin pull out all the stops in the Finale Hurdle at Chepstow. His recent work has been very good and while Sir Erec is a worthy favourite, I'm very excited about my ride.
I thought We Have A Dream was back close to his best when winning the Morebattle at Kelso last time. He felt very good that day and has been giving the right signs at home since.
It's a difficult task for him under 11st 11lb in the Randox Health County Handicap Hurdle but I think he's coming back to the boil and am hoping for the best.
