The first horse to keep an eye on this weekend at Cheltenham on his return is the exciting Tritonic, who lit up the British Juvenile Hurdle division last season and this term is looking to take on the seasoned two milers.
A smart animal on the flat, Tritonic hit an impressive rating of 99 on the level and last term was then sent hurdling by Alan King in January.
He made a pleasing jumping debut, despite the soft ground maybe slightly blunting his turn of foot, he still managed to win impressively at Ascot.
That saw him get backed in the betting for the Triumph Hurdle and next time out he laid down his festival claims by demolishing the field in the Grade Two Adonis Hurdle at Kempton.
Backed into favourite for the Triumph over course and distance at Cheltenham he never ran his race unfortunately finishing a tame fifth of the eight runners.
He has since been back on the flat and ran to an average level, but those runs should have set him up perfectly for this event and he is the one to beat.
