Nigel Twiston-Davies is set for a big season with him starting to unleash some of his big guns for the season and he has two nice runners at Cheltenham on Friday.
One of the leading Novice Hurdlers last season Al Dancer is now going Novice Chasing and this four runner field last season was a superstar over flights winning four of his five races.
His best performances came at Cheltenham in a Class 3 Handicap Hurdle and at Ascot in the Grade Three Betfair Hurdle at Ascot but he then flopped in the Supreme Novices Hurdle at the festival which saw the end of his season.
Now stepping into unknown territory over fences he looks the most likely in this field to handle it the best but it looks a high class contest and he will need to be at his best from the start.
The other horse we like the look of for trainer NTD is Belmount and this 10 year old gelding after a break went to Warwick in a three mile event and ran to a decent standard finishing third of eight behind some smart runners with second that day since running another big race.
He is two pounds lower than that run and seems to be getting back down to a mark he cane in off and could be a nice each way price.
