A race that was farmed by Willie Mullins back in the day, has not been quite such a happy hunting round in recent years. BLACKBOW can put that right here, having already shown the strongest form in the field when beating Rhinestone at Leopardstown last time. Acey Milan looks the best of the home team having already picked up a pair of Listed bumpers on soft ground. Felix Desjy has received plenty of each way support in the last week so needs respect in the hood. Thebannerkingrebel can outrun his huge price for those looking for one each way.

The Flying Sofa
J: Jamie Moore T: Gary Moore
Pitched straight into Listed class on his debut, only beaten three lengths by Didtheyleaveuoutto at Ascot. Not really built on that effort in a pair of starts since, including one on heavy ground. Needs considerably more to make an impression.
Tornado Flyer
J: P. Townend T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland
Showed a likeable attitude when winning on debut, pulling well clear with the runner-up. That second has won himself since to give the form a tidy boost. Out of a half sister to Hurricane Fly, he’s going to do better in time but will no doubt prove popular with each way players here.
The Big Bite
J: Noel Fehily T: Tom George
Cracking type, he was instantly in the notebook in the parade ring on his successful Lingfield debut. Made it 2/2 this season with a Huntingdon win, this will be significantly softer ground than he has encountered so far. Outside squeak if he copes.
J: Gavin Sheehan T: Jamie Snowden
2/2 so far, on both occasions giving the impression that more of a test of stamina would be beneficial to him. He will relish these conditions, said to be 'class' by his trainer, he is one of the more interesting outsiders to sneak into the frame.
Stoney Mountain
J: Andrew Tinkler T: Henry Daly
Showed the benefit of his debut when knuckling down well to win at Warwick last time. This stiffer test will suit, with heavy ground no issue but it would still be a significant surprise if he is anything like good enough to make the grade.
J: D. J. Mullins T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland
Didn’t set the world alight in her bumper win, she was beaten by Relegate last time. No good reason to think that she can reverse that form at Cheltenham, others well ahead of her in the Closutton pecking order.
J: Ms K. Walsh T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland
Kept her unbeaten record in tact when winning at Fairyhouse last time. She easily saw off her stablemate Colreevy there and should do so again. That was a Grade 2 contest so despite not getting a sparkling rating for that win, she needs respect.
J: Sam Twiston-Davies T: Nigel Twiston-Davies
Beat Acey Milan at Exeter in October, well beaten when they met again on New Year’s Day. This longer trip on deep ground may not suit him as well as that rival so he has plenty to find to get involved.
Jaytrack Parkhomes
J: Harry Cobden T: Colin Tizzard
Won on his sole start, on heavy ground at Fontwell last month. On that bare form, he has a mountain to climb but the Colin Tizzard yard won this in 2010 with a once raced Fontwell winner by the name of Cue Card! That's not to say by any stretch that he is the next Cue Card but the yard can win this with an outsider.
Arch My Boy
J: Leighton Aspell T: Martin Smith
Placed twice in bumpers on deep ground, but it would be one of the biggest shocks in the history of the Festival if he were to get his head in front to end Wednesday’s card.
Acey Milan
J: Aidan Coleman T: Anthony Honeyball
Dual Listed winner, including at this track on heavy ground. He has stepped forward considerably each time he has set foot on track, another here would put him right in the mix. Conditions clearly suit him perfectly, looks the best of the home team.
J: A. P. Heskin T: Tom George
Well supported when making a winning debut at Musselburgh last month. The fourth has finished second since to give the form a little substance, though it falls a long way short of what is required here. Open to plenty of progression but will need to be if he is to get involved.
J: Barry Geraghty T: Joseph Patrick O'Brien, Ireland
Runner-up to Blackbow last time out, the winner got first run on him but then idled late allowing this horse to close the gap. Stamina looks his strong suit, with heavy ground no concern. Big each way contender from powerful connections.
J: Mark Walsh T: Nick Gifford
Bolted up on the Polytrack at Lingfield on debut, again mightily impressive at Ascot when stepped up in class. That Ascot bumper looked a deep contest, connections believing he won despite the cut in the ground. These will be far deeper conditions which pose a significant concern.
Dashel Drasher
J: Matt Griffiths T: Jeremy Scott
Once raced, he won a Wincanton contest on heavy ground. The surface is at least a plus therefore but the quality of this field is chalk and cheese to that. Yard know the family well but doesn’t look one of the more likely ones.
Crooks Peak
J: Richard Johnson T: Philip Hobbs
Softer ground compared to his debut win was no issue when powering up the hill here in November to take home a Listed prize. The form of that contest isn’t strong for that level, he looks more of a long term recruit despite his pair of victories.
Carefully Selected
J: R. Walsh T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland
Hasn’t done anything wrong when winning a pair of bumpers under Patrick Mullins. It’s not a surprise that he favours Blackbow here but Ruby Walsh is an able deputy! Stamina is very much his strong suit so expect to see him pushing this along from a fair way out.
Doc Penfro
J: Brian Hughes T: Kevin Frost
Improved from first start to second, but not enough to think that he can play any kind of role. A future chaser, he is very much a long term project compared to the main protagonists.
Felix Desjy
J: Davy Russell T: Gordon Elliott, Ireland
Hung right at Down Royal last time close home, suggesting that going this way round will suit him better. Connections fit him with a first time hood as he got a little keen on the front end there. Lots of money about for him in the last week so needs plenty of each way respect.
Nestor Park
J: Daryl Jacob T: Ben Pauling
No match for Acey Milan at Newbury last time, the softest surface that he has run on. Deeper still now, that doesn’t look an obvious plus for him. Best off waiting for him to go hurdling on better ground before supporting.
Mercy Mercy Me
J: Paddy Brennan T: Fergal O'Brien
Once raced, he made no mistake at Sandown in November. The runner-up is now rated 134 over hurdles, though the rest of the field he beat have been disappointing since. Shapes like further will suit sooner rather than later but he represents a smart yard in these events.
Know The Score
J: Tom Scudamore T: David Pipe
Big money purchase, he showed he’s all about stamina when bolted up on his debut for this yard at Towcester. This is a whole different ballgame, but the runner-up has won since to frank the form and deep ground is no issue for him. If this becomes a slog, he holds an each way squeak.
J: Alain Cawley T: Fergal O'Brien
Beat a nice type here in October before a bitterly disappointing run in the Ascot bumper won by Didtheyleaveuoutto. This is by a long way the softest ground he has run on, which is a significant question mark in such a deep contest.
J: Mr P. W. Mullins T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland
Very well touted before a winning bumper debut at Christmas, he demonstrated his class at the Dublin Racing Festival in February beating Rhinestone. That looks the strongest formline on offer, with deep ground no issue. Could be a monster in the making.
