The superstar Champ pulled off the performance of the 2020 Cheltenham festival when jumping the last in the RSA well behind the two tiring leaders but managing to fly up the hill, staying the best of the field and just getting up on the line to land the Grade One.
Before that race he lost his unbeaten record over fences when falling two out at Cheltenham on New Year's Day, but at the festival he put everything right and looks to be a hell of a staying horse.
The Gold Cup is the big target for the horse this term and with that in mind the Seven Barrows team will start him off in the Denman Chase on Saturday at Newbury.
It has been a tricky season for the JP McManus owned Grade One winner with him having a few problems and it has seen him be off the track since his heroic win at the Cheltenham festival in March.
However, he is now said to be back to his best and ready for his first run of the season, having had a wind op and also doing plenty of schooling, he should be right in the frame for this event.
The racing world is excited to see his return to the track and he looks to be one of Britains best chances for the 2021 Gold Cup.
