I rewatched Altoirs QMCC this year and the power and effort coming up the hill was monsterous.

One thing that did come to mind was the ease min rose up to come round the bend, altior was off the bridle a long way out and fair play to Nico to instrument that continued performance. Now I havenít looked at the time of the race but considering altior was off the bridle so early, could we see a step up in trip this year?

I know there were suggestions after Cheltenham of being stepped up as a test before the summer break but from what I recall they were shelved due to ground/ time to recover after Cheltenham.

I checked skybet and current odds are:
12/1 Ryanair
33/1 Gc
