Notable Race Wins: 2021 Cheltenham Gold Cup (Cheltenham Festival)

A shock 50/1 winner of the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle back at the 2019 Cheltenham Festival, Minella Indo nearly notched up back-to-back wins at the Prestbury Park extravaganza, as he finished a narrow second behind Champ in the 2020 RSA Chase. Always appearing to bring out his A game at the spring festival in March, Henry De Bromhead's nine-year-old returned to the Cheltenham for the 2021 Cheltenham Gold Cup. Producing a stunning performance in the showpiece event, Minella Indo - under a fine ride from Jack Kennedy saw off A Plus Tard to claim a second festival success with a fine Cheltenham Gold Cup win.

However, since that momentous day at GL50, De Bromhead's star has been unable to record another victory, so he will be hoping a return to Cheltenham for the Gold Cup will see him at his best, and he's certainly not one to write off in a competitive renewal in 2022.

He kicked off this season with a third placed effort behind Frodon and Gold Cup contender Galvin in the Ladbrokes Champion Chase at Down Royal, while he put up a really disappointing effort when pulling up in the King George VI Chase at Kempton Park on Boxing Day. Prominent that day, Minella Indo was struggling from a long way out, and was pulled up three fences from home, as he saw his price ease considerably in the Cheltenham Gold Cup betting.

Producing his best performance of the season on his last start, Minella Indo chased home Gordon Elliott's Conflated in the Irish Gold Cup at Leopardstown in early February, and while he failed to get his head in front that day, he showed signs that he could be coming to hand at the crucial time. With a fine record at the big spring festivals, Minella Indo was duly trimmed in the betting following his second placed finish in the Irish Gold Cup, and that could prove to be the perfect prep run for trying to retain his Cheltenham Gold Cup crown.
