Totterdown is declared at Huntingdon tomorrow in the two mile handicap hurdle run at 2.52pm.  He will have top weight as it is a drop down in class for him and Finn Lambert will once again take five pounds off his back.

He was a course and distance winner in his younger days and he appears in good form although the race includes one or two younger models with good recent form.

It was great to welcome so many owners during Cheltenham week and as ever the Festival produced many great moments.  I was fortunate enough to attend yesterday to see a fantastic Gold Cup with Galopin Des Champs proving to be exceptional and the runner up producing a supreme effort.

There have been many great moments from the week with lots of potential stars for the future including Ballyburn, Lossiemouth and Fact To File.  A good week for the Irish but they will know better than anyone that with a Henderson team in form and the likes of Skelton and Pauling, there will be plenty of opposition in the coming years
