Forget the worries about whether he will come up the hill or that he worked " terribly" last weekend, and get stuck into Harchibald in a mouth-watering renewal of the Smurfit Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham today.
Noel Meade's gelding has been incredibly easy on the eye in winning his last three starts without coming off the bridle.
He cost punters dear when a beaten favourite in the County Hurdle 12 months ago but Paul Carberry went too soon on a horse who shows his very best when held up until the last minute.
In any case he has improved out of all recognition this season, with five of today's rivals - including Back In Front, Macs Joy and Rooster Booster - brushed aside with contemptuous ease.
Granted he was getting 5lb from Back In Front, but that made little difference on the day, such was the manner in which he won.
Subsequent wins in the 'Fighting Fifth' and the Christmas Hurdle at Kempton, where he scythed down the admirable Rooster Booster from a seemingly impossible position turning for home, have shown him to be right out of the top drawer.
His below-par work at Navan can be put down to the desperate ground and he has done nothing but please connections since.
Drying ground is no problem and all punters need now is for Mr Carberry to keep his nerve as there are going to be a few of the big guns bang there jumping the last.
War Of Attrition is the banker of the week for many in the Irish Independent Arkle Trophy.
He lived up to his name when going down in a thriller to Brave Inca in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle last year and has taken exceptionally well to fences.
Unbeaten in two outings over the bigger obstacles, he was never out of first gear when cantering to success at Naas last month.
Meade's Wild Passion is the selection in what looks a wide-open renewal of this year's Letheby & Christopher-sponsored Supreme.
He disappointed last time at Sandown but that run was simply too bad to be true and he is better judged on his form earlier in the season, which includes two victories over Justified, who is favourite today.
The William Hill Trophy Handicap Chase looks a good opportunity for Heros Collonges. The Paul Nichollstrained ex-French gelding promised to be special in his younger days with Guillaume Macaire but has been plagued by problems.
However, he has been nursed back gradually and there was much to like about his win at Wincanton in February, his first outing over fences for 37 months. A 3lb rise for his dismissal of the in-form Bathwick Annie does not look too harsh.
Spot Thedifference has plenty of form to suggest he is the one for the inaugural Sporting Index Handicap
Chase over the cross-country course while Regal Setting makes plenty of each-way appeal in the closing Fred Winter Juvenile Novices' Handicap Hurdle. n Previous winner The Bunny Boiler heads a sixstrong Irish-trained team for Saturday's John Smith's Midlands Grand National at Uttoxeter.
The Noel Meade-trained 11-year-old won the four-andaquarter-mile contest three years ago. Forty-five entries have been made for the £100,000 race, including L'Aventure, whose trainer Paul Nicholls said: "She's in great form and I think the conditions will suit."
D'Argent, who sidesteps Cheltenham, is likely to be among the fancied runners, while Mac's Supreme aims to provide trainer Ferdy Murphy with a second success following the victory of Ackzo five years ago.
