Cyrname returns to his favourite course on Saturday as he looks to defend the Betfair Ascot Chase crown won so convincingly 12 months ago.
 
It will be the first time back on the track since the Paul Nicholls trained eight-year-old finished a distant second behind stablemate Clan Des Obeaux in the King George VI Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day.
 
He will be hoping for a return to the form which saw him beat Altior, a convincing winner at Newbury on Saturday, in his last appearance at Ascot in November.

In the 2019 Betfair Ascot Chase, Cyrname made all at a strong pace to hold off the favourite Waiting Patiently by a hugely impressive 17 lengths in what turned out to be his final run of the season.
 
The Nigel Twiston-Davies trained Riders Onthe Storm is likely to prove the biggest rival in the £150,000 Grade One contest.
