4.00 Foxhunter Chase

With Salsify denied the chance to become the first horse to claim three CGA Foxhunter Chase victories at the 2014 Cheltenham Festival, there is a wide-open feel to this season's Gold Cup for amateurs.

Although making his customary late charge, Salsify was four lengths down and not making any more ground on Oscar Delta last term until that rival brushed against the rail and then unshipped the luckless Jane Mangan as he jinked to the left.

Salsify became the seventh dual scorer, emulating The Callant, Whinstone Hill, College Master, Double Silk, Fantus and Earthmover, but an injury robbed him of the chance to make history with a famous hat-trick.

The Foxhunter Chase is run over the same 3m 2f trip as steeplechasing's Blue Riband event, with 22 fences to be jumped, and expensive recent purchase Mossey Joe is expected to be a major contender for top honours this term.
