winner of the Spa Hurdle in 2019 and edged out by Champ in the RSA last season, proved better than ever back at this track, bouncing back from a couple of reverses when a short price at Leopardstown on his last 2 starts, always in a good rhythm and jumping as well as any bar Frodon; never far away, jumped well in main, travelled strongly, not fluent ninth, went second seventeenth, led soon after 3 out, ridden out; he's one of the best winners of this race in the last decade and is young enough to build further on his already excellent record.

winner of the novice handicap chase and third in the Ryanair at the last 2 Festivals, took his form up a notch further, tackling the longest trip he's yet faced, fine margins between him and his stable companion, caught briefly in a pocket as Black Op began to weaken, not so quick as the winner over the last 2 fences when a better jump was needed to get on terms; held up, jumped slightly right at times, travelled well, headway when mistake sixteenth, short of room after 4 out, chased leader home turn, held only final 100 yds; he's a year younger than the winner and only just arriving at the top of the staying chasing tree, further good races surely going to be added to his record.

bidding to join Cottage Rake, Arkle and Best Mate as a 3-time winner of the Cheltenham Gold Cup, fell short in the attempt, though he probably ran to a very similar level to that of his wins, just beaten by better horses, though his jumping was a bit fiddly at times; in touch, not always fluent, travelled well, tracked pace approaching 3 out, short of room home turn, not quicken; he may well be back for a fourth attempt in 2022, all being well, though it's over 20 years since a horse as old as 10 won the race.

was far from disgraced, making the frame in the race for the fourth time, though his best chance of a second win in the race was perhaps last year's, which he missed, the conditions here just not placing enough emphasis on stamina, rather like in 2019 never really on the bridle, his finishing position owing plenty to his rider; chased leaders, uncomfortable with pace, ridden thirteenth, lost place fifteenth, rallied well straight, took fourth close home; he would have been a really interesting runner in the Grand National, but wasn't entered, the Bowl the option at Aintree, testing ground the key to his chance, should he go there.

has a tremendous record at Cheltenham and his usual tactics were executed as well as they could have been, but he didn't get home over a trip that had threatened to be too far for him; led, jumped superbly, went with zest, headed after 3 out, soon done with, lost fourth close home; presumably the Bowl at Aintree is an option next, likely to be more competitive there, though the Oaksey Chase at Sandown might be ideal.

running here in preference to either the Broadway or the NH Chase, found this much more challenging than handicap company and his jumping didn't really hold up as a result; held up, jumped sketchily, blundered seventeenth, labouring after, never on terms; may be best on soft/heavy ground as well.

twice placed in the Ryanair, hasn't looked the force of old this season and was well held, though he shaped better than the distances indicate, a significant mistake as things were hotting up his undoing; held up, still plenty to do but yet to be asked for effort when blundered 4 out, ridden after and left behind.

had beaten the winner (and Allaho) in the RSA last season and had shaped very well in his trial, over just 2m, but his race here was over as soon as it had begun, belting the first and never recovering, his rider calling it a day after barely a mile; held up, jumped badly, ridden after third, pulled up before seventh; he has the ability to make an impact at a high level, whether he can get back on track in what's left of the season after this remains to be seen.

in a change of headgear (visor instead of cheekpieces) in a bid to get him back to the form that saw him finish runner-up last season, lost his chance with an awful mistake at the second ditch, though his attitude again looked very questionable and his temperament is clearly under suspicion; in touch, bad mistake seventh, mistake next, lost place, pulled up circuit out, turned it in; he's the one Grand National entry in the field, though there would be wiser options for his next run.

All 12 ran. Fences: 22.

Winning Owner: Mr Barry Maloney

Time: 6m 45.3s Closing Sectional: (3.84f): 57.60s (102.7%)

Overrounds: Industry SP 115%, Betfair SP 102.1%

The blue riband of steeplechasing, drawing a really representative field, the winners of the King George, Savills Chase and Irish Gold Cup in the line-up, as well as those that had run well in the race before, the winner of the last 2 years, the winner the year before that and the second and third from 2020, the first 2 in the final RSA Chase and a novice that had shown high-class form in handicaps flying the flag for the up-and-coming brigade, all plausible contenders for a Gold Cup that on paper was more open than the market suggested; the race was run at a sound gallop, though Frodon's jumping in front tested plenty of his rivals, the winner the one of those behind that jumped best, good jumps at the last 2 ensuring he maintained his advantage as the first 3, Irish-trained inevitably, drew well clear, the form shown by Minella Indo behind only Don Cossack among winners in the last decade; it was, above all, an engrossing horserace to watch, encapsulating everything jumping is about and it capped a week where the level of performance was consistently high.

MINELLA INDO (IRE) winner of the Spa Hurdle in 2019 and edged out by Champ in the RSA last season, proved better than ever back at this track, bouncing back from a couple of reverses when a short price at Leopardstown on his last 2 starts, always in a good rhythm and jumping as well as any bar Frodon; never far away, jumped well in main, travelled strongly, not fluent ninth, went second seventeenth, led soon after 3 out, ridden out; he's one of the best winners of this race in the last decade and is young enough to build further on his already excellent record.
