We grabbed a minute with the 16-time Festival winner to get his thoughts on this year's Festival.
Who wins the Gold Cup?
The sensible pick would be Native River but my heart says Cue Card.
Banker of the week?
Like most I'm a huge fan of Altior in the Arkle.
Dark horse of the week?
I like the look of Alan King's Uxizandre in whatever race he turns up in whether that be the Ryanair or the Champion Chase.
Your favourite Cheltenham memory?
I've been lucky enough to have lots of great memories at the Festival and it's difficult to single one out. If forced, I'd probably opt for Voy Por Ustedes' Arkle win back in 2006. I remember Kingy told me before the race that Monet's Garden was the one to beat but I told him he'd be to slow. Then when we came back in to the winners enclosure, Alan said 'I told you Monet's Garden was the one' I just replied 'yes, and I told you he'd be too slow!' All my wins at the Festival are very special.
