    Horse: Romanesco

    Trainer: Gordon Elliott

    Romanesco has four entries at the Festival, but it looks like the Kim Muir is his target, and that is the race in which he would be of greatest interest.

    Winner of a novices' handicap hurdle at Perth last September on just his third run for Gordon Elliott, the Epistolaire gelding would surely have won the three-mile amateur riders' handicap chase at Cheltenham's October meeting this season had he not fallen at the final fence when he had just hit the front.

    He gained compensation of sorts when easily landing a handicap chase at Fakenham on his next run, and he ran a cracker in the Paddy Power Chase at Leopardstown's Christmas Festival off a mark of 125 on ground that should have been too soft for him, staying on strongly from the rear to finish a clear second best behind leading Grand National hope Colbert Station.

    You can easily ignore his two runs either side of the Paddy Power, as both were on unsuitably heavy ground, and he came home with a respiratory tract infection after finishing down the field in a novices' handicap hurdle at Fairyhouse on his latest start, his first in the Gigginstown House colours.

    A mark of 131 is fair, and he should be much happier on the better ground that he should encounter at Cheltenham. We know that he handles the track, the near-three-and-a-quarter-mile trip will be ideal, and Nina Carberry has apparently been booked for the ride since before his run at Fairyhouse.
