Silviniaco Conti has a golden opportunity to further enhance his Gold Cup credentials in the Denman Chase at 2-25. Victories in the Charlie Hall and Betfair Chase have earned him his loft rating of 172 and he should prove tough to beat here. It may be wiser to seek value elsewhere however with the classy Menorah in the line up. Despite not always convincing with his jumping he has serious class judged on his hurdling efforts. His victory in the rearranged Peterbrough Chase was impressive and he can improve for the further step up in trip.
The Betfair Hurdle is extremely competitive as usual and My Tent Or Yours warrants maximum respect but looks a little short in the market. Instead the unbeaten Swing Bowler makes plenty of appeal at 14/1, his latest victory was very comfortable and he is with a yard that does very well in these events.
