No you're right, neither of those moved up in distance. But the thing about Altior is he's a brute and a stayer. The other two were all class over 2miles. Altior can run poorly, be a bit untidy at his fences but he relishes a battle and outstaying his rivals. He is stamina first and foremost. The Gold Cup is the ultimate stamina test.

I'd imagine altior will go for the king George as one poster already said and see how he gets on there before making any decisions about Cheltenham. Agree with dan ball, altior not a patch on sprinter sacre at two miles as he doesn't have the same raw pace. Has potential staying power though for GC
