first_img Sir Des Champs will be aiming to give Willie Mullins a first victory in the race and Ireland its first winner since War Of Attrition in 2006. First Lieutenant has also been left in by Mouse Morris, under the same Gigginstown House Stud ownership, and they could also run Bog Warrior. Bobs Worth and 2011 winner Long Run give Nicky Henderson a strong hand as he attempts to wrestle the British trainers’ championship from Paul Nicholls. Long Run will be wearing cheekpieces in public for the first time, while Bobs Worth has not had a run since the Hennessy Gold Cup over 100 days ago. Nicholls has dominated the race in recent years and has just one chance this year with Silviniaco Conti. Cape Tribulation, Captain Chris, last year’s runner-up The Giant Bolster, Sunnyhillboy, Wayward Prince and Monbeg Dude complete the list of possible runners. There are 12 horses remaining at the latest entry stage for the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup, with all the big guns standing their ground.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
