Nolan has three stars in tow

Davidstown trainer Paul Nolan arrived at Cheltenham with three of his stable stars in tow, and for the veteran of the troop it is a case of returning to the scene of his crowning hour.

Noble Prince is 20/1 for Friday's Foxhunter Chase but he was a much shorter 4/1 on St. Patrick's Day, 2011, when he landed the Jewson Novices' Chase under A.P. McCoy. And trainer Nolan is hoping he turns on the style once again.

'He's in good form and goes into the race on the back of two wins in open races at Punchestown and Ballinaboola, and he knows his way around Cheltenham.

'Dick Dundee is in the Grand Annual. He had a good win at Gowran Park on Thyestes Day. He's an aged horse, has won six or seven races and will hopefully run respectably. Fine Article will go in the Albert Bartlett and will want the rain to come.'
