12:40 - Walk In The Mill

The first race of the day is the Markel Insurance Amateur Riders' Handicap Chase and Walk In The Mill for trainer Robert Walford, can take the opener.

Looked progressive at 3miles last year away from the mud, some possible untapped potential and definitely up for consideration.

Martin McIntyre, a number of claimers in the field, takes 3lb off the top weight.

13:15 - Rockpoint

Rockpoint will look to provide Colin Tizzard with yet another winner, when lining up for this Novice Handicap Hurdle event.

Rockpoint has been off the track since early May, where he rounded off the season with a fine second at Exeter.

The slight worry is that he is an eight-race maiden, and aside from that effort at the back end of the last campaign, he has not really come close to breaking that tag.

13:50 - Bun Doran

Tom George - who has started the new season off brightly, sends another horse from the Crossed Fingers Partnership to Prestbury Park for this BetVictor Handicap Chase.

Bun Doran ran well here on last season's reappearance, and Class 2 seems to be his level. On a competitive mark, and holds strong claims.

14:25 - Jenkins

Jenkins seemed to take a long time to produce the promise Nicky Henderson invested in him. He won a couple of nice features at Ascot and Kempton last year, and can build on his seasonal reappearance at Stratford last month, which was essentially a jog around the block.

Trainer admits he is in good order, and ready to go again. Interesting to see if headgear is selected.

15:00 - Tiger Roll

Tiger Roll - winner of the Cross Country Chase here at the Festival in March, before landing the World's Greatest Steeplechase; The Grand National at Aintree a month later, begins his campaign for a defence of that crown here at Cheltenham.

This year he will have to cope with top weight in the events previously named, but he is a gutsy and game horse, who gives everything to the cause. Not his time of year it has to be said, but hopefully he can pick up where he left off last year.

The class act.

15:35 - Pym

Pym was disappointing at Ascot last time, when being beaten at a very short price, and now needs to improve over a longer trip.

He scored on his hurdle debut at Chepstow, but trainer is bullish about his chances of progression, and has a lot to live up to; sporting the famous colours of QMCC winner Altior. Needs to prove he can stay the extended distance.
