The seven year old has been a superb horse during his career, really bouncing onto the scene in 2019 when taking the old Novices' Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham festival.
Two seasons he again put up another superb performance at Leopardstown over Christmas, when becoming one of the very few horses to beat Chacun Pour Soi in a Grade One.
He went to Cheltenham off the back of that run in the Ryanair and when punted to run a big race, could only finish third behind Min.
Last term, he made his seasonal debut in the two mile Grade 2 Fortria Chase at Navan, where he was narrowly beaten by Castlegrace Paddy.
It was obvious that two miles was not his trip and De Bromhead last time out sent him over three miles for the first time in his career and didn't half suit him.
In the Grade 1 Savills Chase he came from a long way back off the pace to snatch victory at Leopardstown.
He headed into the Gold Cup with a huge chance and in the end ran a valiant race in second just being seen off by stablemate Minella Indo who outstayed him on the day.
The gelding returns for his seasonal debut in this event and is said to be in top shape at home.
