Champ to many pundits has been there lay of the festival but he holds bundles of ability and if being able to get his jumping spot on has to be feared.
Gears is a word used to describe this horse as his staying ability seems to get his jumping out of trouble but he may need more than that in this hot affair.
He is yet to run over three miles but on his three starts this season has shown he will get the trip after winning twice at Newbury, the second win being his most impressive in the Grade Two Berkshire Novices Chase.
Last time out on New Year's Day he looked sure to keep his unbeaten record when cruising at Cheltenham but at the second to last fence he guessed at the fence and came down.
This is where the question marks need to be answered.
