Last year's gallant runner-up, A Plus Tard leaped to the head of the Gold Cup betting following an emphatic win in the Betfair Chase. Most then expected Henry De Bromhead's star to retain his Savills Chase crown over Christmas, but the favourite was pipped to the post by Galvin, who now sits second in the Gold Cup market.
Minella Indo could only finish third on his reappearance at Down Royal and drifted further down the ante-post Cheltenham Festival betting following a dreadful run in the King George VI Chase over Christmas. Tornado Flyer was on-hand to deliver Willie Mullins a second King George after the pace collapsed at Kempton and he was cut into 12/1 on the back of that first Grade One win.
Two-time Gold Cup winner, Al Boum Photo was slashed for Cheltenham after making a winning return at Tramore on Christmas day. Dan Skelton's Protektorat is the best placed of the British challengers, following an emphatic win in the Many Clouds Chase at Aintree.
Chantry House drifted right out to 25/1 after being pulled up in the King George. Asterion Forlonge, Champ, Allaho and Envoi Allen can all be backed for the Cheltenham Festival at similar prices.
