Not too bad at all.

The five-fold accumulator would see punters go for 11-8 Appreciate It – who you can get at 50-1 HERE – in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle, the Festival's curtain-raiser.

Next comes what appears to be the banker of the day with the Nicky Henderson-trained Shishkin.

The seven-year-old – odds-on at 1-2 now – was being teed up for a spectacular showdown with Energumene, but he was pulled out with injury this morning.

Next in the slip is Henry De Bromhead's Honeysuckle, a 9-4 chance to win the Champion Hurdle.

But he will have to fend off Epatante at 10-3 and Goshen – the Gary Moore superstar back to his best at 4-1 – to keep the bet alive.

Should that land then it's odds-on Concertista who comes up next, an 8-11 chance to land the Mares' Hurdle.

If punters are still standing after that it will all come down to Royale Pagaille in the final race of the day.

Venetia Williams' runner is unbeaten in more than a year and is 11-8 in the National Hunt chase.

But hot on his hooves are 11-4 Galvin and 6-1 Escaria Ten.
