2.40 The Festival Handicap Chase

Victories for Royal Tan, Team Spirit, West Tip, Seagram and Rough Quest in the Festival Trophy Chase highlight how Grand National types often come to the fore in this race, with that quintet among those to achieve success in both contests.

Run over 3m 110yds, with 19 fences to jump, it was claimed last year by 28/1 shot Golden Chieftain for Colin Tizzard and Brendan Powell - with only Sentina in 1958 and Scot Lane in 1983 completing a double the following campaign.

Jonjo O'Neill has won it twice in the last five years with Wichita Lineman and Alfie Sherrin, while Alan King prevailed in 2004 with Fork Lightning and 2011 with Bensalem.

Robert Thornton partnered the last two named horses and 2005 scorer Kelami to make him the most successful jockey in this race, while Monbeg Dude would be a popular victor this term, being owned by a number of Gloucester rugby stars, including Mike Tindall, husband of Zara Phillips.
