Last year's runner-up Carole's Destrier sbobet88888 bids to go one better in the Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury on Saturday.Neil Mulholland's nine-year-old found only subsequent Cheltenham Gold Cup third Native River too strong in the former Hennessy Gold Cup 12 months ago, but disappointed when rivalry was renewed in the Welsh Grand National at Chepstow.Carole's Destrier has not been seen in competitive action since that eclipse last Christmas, but Mulholland is confident his charge is fit and raring to go.He said: "We are very happy with Carole's Destrier. He has been away a couple of times, including at Newbury last week, and we have had a good, clean preparation."He went there first time out last season and finished second. You can never go into a race like this bullish, but hopefully he will run well."Carole's Destrier is one of three Mulholland representatives in the prestigious handicap as sbobet88888 Pilgrims Bay and Southfield Royale are also in the mix.Pilgrims Bay was sixth in the Badger Ales Trophy at Wincanton last time, with Southfield Royale pulled up in the same race.Mulholland added: "Pilgrims Bay is fine. The ground would have been a bit softer than he would have wanted at Wincanton and that run would have brought him on."They should go a nice gallop at Newbury, which will suit him, and fingers crossed he can play a part in the second half of the race."Southfield Royale has first-time blinkers. He has got the ability and, if the blinkers bring the best out him, he could run very well."Nico de Boinville is hopeful 2015 Cheltenham Gold Cup hero Coneygree can show his true colours, despite the burden of top weight.The Mark Bradstock-trained 10-year-old suffered an overreach on his seasonal reappearance in thesbobet88888Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby, but is reported firing on all cylinders as he bids to emulate his half-brother Carruthers, who claimed this prize in 2011.
