Colin Tizzard for the last few seasons has had big chances in the Gold Cup and again he has another horse coming through that could well be the next winner of the contest.
Lostintranslation was ran frequently last season and was muddled about with what distance he is best at and it took until the final race of the season for Tizzard to finally see the light.
The seven-year-old raced six times throughout the season, putting in some stellar performances at 2 mile 3f to 2 mile 6f with a superb second behind Defi Du Seuil at Cheltenham in the JLT Novices Chase and also a good win in the Dipper Novices Chase earlier in the season at the same track.
However, his final contest of the season was at Aintree on his first step up to 3 miles 1 furlong in the Grade One Novices Chase and this was the race that put him in the 2020 Gold Cup frame.
He led all the way and when normally he was being outpaced, he revelled in the extra trip and put the field to shame including RSA Chase winner Topofthegame.
