The popular Sir Gerhard is one of the standout names among the 41 entries for the Turners Novices’ Chase ahead of the 2023 Cheltenham Festival.
Willie Mullins’ Ballymore hero features alongside stablemates Adamantly Chosen, Appreciate It, Bronn, Dysart Dynamo, El Fabiolo, Flame Bearer, Gaillard Du Mesnil, Glengouly, Ha D’Or, I Am Maximus, James Du Berlais, Kilcruit and Ramillies – many of whom are double and even triple-engaged across the four novice chases.
Mighty Potter, our antepost favourite for the race, is one of three for trainer Gordon Elliott, who also has last term’s Triumph Hurdle runner-up Fil Dor and Hollow Games entered.
Some other potential Irish raiders are Journey With Me for Henry De Bromhead – who was not given an entry for the Brown Advisory which many were expecting – Mouse Morris’ Gentlemansgame and Banbridge for Joseph O’Brien.
The British contingent includes but isn’t limited to Patrick Neville’s The Real Whacker, who is prominent in the betting for the three-miler, Balco Coastal for Nicky Henderson, the Paul Nicholls duo of McFabulous and Stage Star and Lac De Constance for the red-hot Dan Skelton.
