Trainer - Willie Mullins
Bellshill is already amongst the market principles for the Grand National at Aintree next April, having established himself as one of the leading stayers around, following his win in the Punchestown Gold Cup at the back end of last season.
He was also fourth (later disqualified fifth) in the Irish National a few weeks prior to his Grade 1 success, and begins his campaign with a warm-up here in the 1965 Chase.
This will brush away the cobwebs, before he tackles much longer distances and on worse ground conditions than this.
Top stayer, but better middle-distancers in this field. Would be no surprise if he was in the firing line however.
