11st 6lb

J: Rachael Blackmore

T: Henry De Bromhead

Acts on heavy; won the 2021 Cheltenham Gold Cup and has always shaped as if stamina is a strong suit; while his powers are on the wane, so is his handicap mark and he took well to the Cheltenham cross-country in December when last seen; ante-post favourite for the Festival cross-country race there which was abandoned; it's ten years since any horse aged more than nine has won the National but 15 were placed in the last ten runnings (six in the last five) and 11yos won it in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

11st 7lb

J: Rachael Blackmore

T: Henry De Bromhead

Won the Gold Cup in 2021 and runner-up in same race in 2022; this 11yo has been lightly raced and inconsistent since but he won a Grade 3 at Punchestown (2m7f, yielding to soft) last October and was a creditable fourth off top weight in C&D handicap (soft) in December on his cross-country debut; has won on heavy ground; in with a leading shout off level weights today.

12st 0lb

J: Rachael Blackmore

T: Henry De Bromhead

Has been on a rocky road since winning the 2021 Cheltenham Gold Cup and his powers are on the wane; encouraging that he still fancied the challenge when digging deep in a Grade 3 chase at Punchestown in October and it was always going to be tough back in a Grade 1 at Down Royal; retains the class to threaten under his big weight if he takes to this unique test.

J: Darragh O’Keeffe

T: Henry De Bromhead

Beat stablemate A Plus Tard when winning the 2021 Cheltenham Gold Cup but was no match for that rival in the 2022 edition; only two runs last year, winning a Grade 3 at Tramore before not getting the best of starts and being pulled-up in the Gold Cup; showed enthusiasm to win a Punchestown Grade 3 on return and should run a big race if improving from that.
