Minella Indo made all to win last year's Gold Cup and Henry De Bromhead's star headlined the opening wave of entries. Stablemate A Plus Tard tops the current Gold Cup betting, which can be found here on our website.

Galvin swept home late to deny A Plus Tard in the Savills Chase over Christmas, and he's been rewarded with a Gold Cup entry by Gordon Elliott. Elliott has handed entries to Mount Ida, Run Wild Fred, Delta Work and Conflated, while Henry De Bromhead could also throw Eklat De Rire into the mix.

Willie Mullins accounts for seven of the 30 Gold Cup entrants, with Al Boum Photo and Tornado Flyer headlining his septet. Nicky Henderson has entered Champ, Chantry House, Mister Fisher and Angels Breath. Paul Nicholls could run Saint Calvados in the feature race of the Cheltenham Festival.

Dan Skelton's only entrant is Protektorat. Royale Pagaille could run again for Venetia Williams. Lucinda Russell has handed an entry to exciting novice Ahoy Senor. Colin Tizzard's duo of Lostintranslation and Fiddlerontheroof could also appear in the main event on day four of the 2022 Cheltenham Festival.
