Silviniaco Conti Set To Star In Denman Chase

Silviniaco Conti, who is one the leading principals in the 2013 Cheltenham Gold Cup ante-post markets, will put the finishing touches to his Cheltenham Festival plans by lining up in Saturday's Betfair Denman Chase at Newbury, which received nine entries.

A smart novice chaser for Paul Nicholls he has become a real top class performer this season as he showed when storming to victory in the Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby.  He then enhanced his lofty reputation when getting the better of former Gold Cup hero Long Run in the Betfair Chase at Haydock Park to propel even further up the market for the Gold Cup.

Nicholls had originally alluded that he will head straight to the Festival, but he has opted for one final prep run before the Prestbury Park extravaganza and connections will be hoping that he can reproduce his early season form, but he will have some notable adversaries in the Grade One contest.

2012 Gold Cup runner-up The Giant Bolster has failed to show his usual vim and vigour this term and David Bridgwater will be hoping that he can perform admirably as he looks to go one better in the Cheltenham blue riband event next month, whilst Menorah will add yet more depth.

He was a superb winner of the Peterborough Chase last time out at Kempton Park and a repeat of that will see him on the vicinity, but with the Ryanair his likely port of call next month, he may find the trip a little too far against some classy opposition.

Of the others starring in the entries, Weird Al will be aiming to show his true colours, whilst the likes of Master Of The Hall and Tom George's intriguing French recruit Mail de Bievre are added to the list in another top class contest on Newbury's superb card.
