Who's your Banker of the Day at Cheltenham on Saturday? – Vote today

As we get closer and closer to the Festival in March, everyone is looking for clues as to who will be in contention come the spring. With that in mind, this week's Banker of the Day poll heads to Trials Day at Cheltenham, where some favourites could cement themselves at the top of their division.

We've picked out four leading contenders from four of the best races on Saturday and are asking you, our Coral Racing Club members, if you had to vote for one to be your Banker of the Day, who would you pick?

The horse who gets the most votes will be put into an exclusive Coral Racing Club Odds Booster that will be available under Specials on the Horse Racing page shortly after the poll closes on Friday at 1pm.

Banker of the Day Preview

12:05 Triumph Hurdle Trial – Burdett Road

Royal Ascot winner, Burdett Road, had a fantastic career on the flat with Michael Bell, winning three times in eleven runs, before moving to Paul Nicholls yard in October of last year. Since then he's flourished over hurdles, winning on both of his starts, including a six and-a-half length victory in November's Triumph Trial at Cheltenham. 

Can he remain unbeaten over obstacles this weekend?

13:50 Cotswold Chase – Royale Pagaille

A winner of three Graded contests, including the Grade 1 Betfair Chase at Haydock last time out, Royale Pagaille comes into this weekend's contest looking to solidify his claims for the Gold Cup in March. Regular partner Charlie Deutsch takes the reins as the in-form Venetia Williams yard looks to claim another big race winner this season. 

Can Royale Pagaille win his first Cheltenham race on Saturday?

14:25 Clarence House Chase – Jonbon

The Clarence House Chase heads to Cheltenham for the fifth time in it's existence this weekend, after Ascot fell foul of the weather last Saturday, and Jonbon's task has been made easier after Willie Mullins decided not to send El Fabiolo over for the rearranged date. Since being beat by El Fabiolo in last year's Arkle Chase, Nicky Henderson's gelding has strung together four Graded victories in a row, including three Grade 1 contests. 

Can he land the five-timer at Prestbury Park?

15:00 International Hurdle – Lossiemouth

Willie Mullins sends Lossiemouth to the Cotswolds this weekend for her first outing of the season. The five-year-old mare has won on five of her six starts and arrives here off the back of two Grade 1 victories towards the tail end of last season, including last year's Triumph Hurdle. 

Can she blow off the cobwebs and land the hat-trick?
