* Splash Of Ginge took the BetVictor Gold Cup, The November Meeting's highlight, in 2017. It was a fourth victory in tomorrow's valuable handicap for trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies, and the local trainer has two good chances of capturing a fifth, courtesy of Splash Of Ginge once more and Ballyandy. Twiston-Davies is the current trainer with the best record in the race, but he remains some way short of Martin Pipe's record of eight triumphs in the BetVictor Gold Cup between 1987 and 2005.
* Today's Steel Plate And Sections Novices' Chase (2.25pm) has an illustrious history. In the past 15 years, two horses - Denman in 2006 and Imperial Commander in 2007 - have gone on to win the Magners Cheltenham Gold Cup. In 2017 Colin Tizzard won the two and a half mile race with Finian's Oscar, and Tizzard looks to have a strong hand again with White Moon. Nicky Henderson captured the 2016 renewal with O O Seven, and is represented by Mr Whipped and Jenkins this year.
* Tiger Roll is not the only major star making a reappearance this weekend. Coneygree, winner of the Magners Cheltenham Gold Cup in 2015 for trainer Mark Bradstock, returns to the track tomorrow. Ridden for the first time by Sean Bowen, he carries top-weight in the three-mile, three-furlong BetVictor.com Handicap Chase.
* No horse has yet won Sunday's Unibet Greatwood Handicap Hurdle twice, but Old Guard will attempt to do so. The Paul Nicholls-trained seven-year-old, who is part-owned by TV presenter Jeremy Kyle, took the competitive two-mile handicap in 2015 under Harry Cobden; conditional jockey Lorcan Williams, claiming 5lb, has the ride this time.
