The feature race on the card at Cheltenham on Wednesday is the Grade Two Ballymore Silver Trophy Handicap Chase and Coole Cody looks the value bet.
This 10 year old, although slightly older than most in this field loves it round Cheltenham and looks to have some of the best recent form on offer.
The gelding has been highly consistent this term, needing good ground to be at his best and on debut in August at Newton Abbot he got that and scored nicely.
He backed that up on his next two runs when close seconds at Newton Abbot again and at Cheltenham and that set him up perfectly for a crack at the Paddy Power Gold Cup.
Over a similar trip to this race a Cheltenham, the gelding went on to land his biggest scalp of his career when taking the Grade Three event by close to four lengths.
He was sent back to Cheltenham after that trying to land the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup and having gone up in the weights he still managed to finish sixth of 17 runners.
Given a little break, he returned in the Grade Two Pendil Novices' Chase in February at Newbury and he was third of four runners, with the winner Tamaroc Du Mathan holding some close form with the Dual Grade One winning Shishkin.
Coole Cody headed back to Cheltenham last time out in the Paddy Power Plate at the festival and he managed to finished a superb fourth of 21 runners behind superstar The Shunter and Farclas.
Both the first and second have gone on to frank the form in better races and with conditions to suit Coole Cody looks tough to beat if turning up.
