28 horses go to post for an ultra-competitive renewal of the Coral Cup and the pace is likely to be as frenetic as anything you’ll see at the Festival.

Pendra (8/1, BetVictor) has been well supported for the race and it isn’t hard to see why after his eye-catching second to Melodic Rendezvous.  It was a performance that saw JP McManus reach for the cheque book and he is clearly a horse going places.

However, it could be that MR WATSON (16/1, BetVictor) has been underestimated by the handicapper and the £215,000 purchase looks to be in the right race, having been ante post favourite County Hurdle.

It looked like the longer trip was sure to suit when he won a competitive handicap at Cheltenham in January and he gave the impression that he could be a horse with lots of untapped potential with his victory there. 

The better ground is also certain to suit Jonjo O’Neill’s horse and if AP McCoy can iron out a few of the horse’s quirks, then he can take this before moving on to bigger and better things.

Willie Mullins’ Abbey Lane (7/1, BetVictor) has attracted lots of support, while Nicky Henderson believes that Cash And Go (14/1, Coral) has a big run in him.  The each-way money could be with Crack Away Jack (33/1, bet365), however, who will relish the return to better ground and he looks capable of a massive performance.

Nick Wilby’s selection – Mr Watson (16/1, BetVictor)
