DYSART DYNAMO (1.30 Cheltenham, nap)
He can get the Festival off to a flying start for Willie Mullins.
He won his two bumpers before going over hurdles where he has looked a real natural. He kicked off with a 19-length success at Cork before leaving that behind with an equally easy Grade 2 success at Punchestown where he looked a potential superstar.
RUN WILD FRED (5.30 Cheltenham, nb)
He can give the Coddfather his fourth National Hunt Chase win since 2016.
Jamie Codd is different class in these amateurs’ races and has the ideal partner in Gordon Elliott’s eight-year-old who was a cracking second in a Grade 1 at Leopardstown’s Christmas Festival.
That is much hotter company than this and built on his excellent Troytown victory at Navan in November. This his long been his target and his Irish Grand National second suggests that moving up in distance will be ideal.
QUEENS BROOK (4.10 Cheltenham, treble)
She couldn’t quite catch Burning Victory when they clashed at Punchestown last month but can turn the tales with the benefit of that run under her belt.
She was coming back from a break and Cheltenham’s hill should bring out the best in her.
