Ian Williams saddles probably the best horse in his yard on Saturday afternoon in the form of his previous Listed winner who has won five of her eight career starts to date.

Her only slight disappointment came at Market Rasen back in January, but that was her first start for 15 months and she’s been a model of consistency ever since, including a fine second over course-and-distance last time out.

Ian Williams has three runners at Cheltenham on Saturday afternoon

That should have her spot on for this and she looks to have a huge chance under 3lb claimer, Charlie Todd.

It’s yet to be seen how deep the contest was at Chepstow but Paul Nicholls’ gelding couldn’t have done it anymore takingly in Wales when dispatching a small field under weekend rider, Harry Cobden.

He earned himself a rating of 131 for that performance and his rivals appear to have a bit to find if they’re to topple him at Prestbury Park.

Knight Salute has done nothing wrong since switching to this sphere but this will be his toughest test to date.
