The first Grade One of the season is the Ladbrokes Champion Chase at Down Royal and Gigginstown House Stud have a superb record in this race having won every renewal since 2013.
At this stage before the race, the owners currently have nine of the 18 runners that could go to post for the black type event with the stand out runners looking like, Samcro, Delta Work and Balko Des Flos.
JP McManus could also field a nice team of runners with Fakir D'Oudaries and Darasso both currently entered at this declaration stage, with Joseph O'Brien looking to lay down a big chance in the event.
Others that look interesting if heading to post could be Presenting Percy for his new trainer Gordon Elliott this season and stablemate The Storyteller with both of them being past Cheltenham festival winners.
Our value angle in this race is going to be Presenting Percy, with his run in the Gold Cup being better than what it looked on the surface and now with the master Elliott could get back to his old RSA winning form.
