Silviniaco Conti will attempt to atone for a late departure in the Cheltenham Gold Cup when he lines up in the Betfred Bowl at Aintree on Thursday.

The Paul Nicholls-trained chaser has already won the Charlie Hall Chase, Betfair Chase and Denman Chase this season and looked sure to be involved in finish to chasing’s blue riband event when crashing out three fences from home.

Taking him on is The Giant Bolster, fourth in the Gold Cup, and Cape Tribulation, who was fifth.

Gigginstown House Stud have two runners in Ryanair runner-up First Lieutenant and Quito De La Roque.

With retained jockey Davy Russell prevented form riding in England at present on medical grounds, Bryan Cooper will keep the ride on First Lieutenant and Paul Townend comes in for the mount on Quito De La Roque.

Menorah will attempt three miles again, with Whodoyouthink and Wayward Prince making up the eight-runner field.
