The Brown Advisory Plate is a hugely competitive handicap race at the Cheltenham Festival. It's a Grade 3 National Hunt chase run over two miles and five furlongs, for horses aged five years and upwards. Grade Three status means the top horses are all allowed to enter, which usually gives us a great field for the race.

This year's edition seems sure to be another tightly knit competitive handicap, with many horses arriving looking well handicapped and a maximum field size certain for the excellent prize money on offer.

And now we'll take a closer look at this year's Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate 2019 and try to determine which horse is likely to prevail.

JANIKA, a Nicky Henderson’s six-year-old, has only had two starts in England, and has been impressive in both occasions. Particularly at Cheltenham last time, when he was just touched off by Siruh Du Lac. He was giving his rival over a stone that day.

SIRUH DU LAC has continued to defy the handicapper with three victories over fences this season, climbing from a mark of 123 to 141, beating the useful Janika over C&D in the latest.

SPIRITOFTHEGAMES was 5th in the County Hurdle last season but a longer trip and a fence was always going to see more from him and has ran well in his three starts over the bigger obstacles to date. Last time out he finished third to Kildisart over course and distance

KALONDRA was one of a number of horses who had not been asked a question when coming down four out in the BetVictor Gold Cup back in November. The 8-y-old disappointed when last of four at Haydock the following week, but the hope and suggestion is that race came too soon after his Cheltenham exertions

RIVER WYLDE, who finishing a solid third in the 2016 Supreme Hurdle, fell at the last at Haydock when we had some large obstacles. He would have won, so he is one to follow.

DOITFORTHEVILLAGE was no match for subsequent brilliant Ascot Chase winner Cyrname on January when he was 21-length second. Paul Henderson's experienced chaser finished 3rd of 8 behind Drumlee Sunset at Warwick last month.

LIVELOVELAUGH unfortunately fell twelve months ago in the Novice Handicap. He had a while off after that and was actually pulled up on his reappearance at Leopardstown. His last run was much more like it and finished runner-up in a decent handicap off a mark of 136.

AZZERTI, runner-up in a big-field handicap over hurdles here last April, the gelding has taken well to fences and was in the process of running another big race on the course when a luckless faller on festival trials day.

MODUS was well beaten at 12/1 when seventh of 10 on his latest outing in a Grade 3 chase in the Group 3 888Sport Handicap Chase at Kempton over 3m last month.

The sole Irish contenders are the veeran VALSEUR LIDO and the very attractive POLIDAM, who was well beaten at 28/1 behind Invitation Only when seventh of 18 on his latest outing in a chase at Gowran Park over 3m 1f in January.

SOME BUCKLE has an absence to overcome but has a decent strike-rate over fences and could surprise a few if fully wound-up while KAUTO RIKO will love the ground having found the going too quick last time at Wetherby.

BOUVREUIL could be a lively outsider for Paul Nicholls. Third in this race two years ago, he will run off a 3lb lower mark in the 2019 renewal.

GARDEFORT finished second in the Grand Annual two years ago and looked to be on the way back to form when unseating on his last start.

EAMON AN CNOIC was ninth in last year's Ultima Handicap Chase. He has won on his latest outing in a chase at Chepstow over 2m last month, beating Capeland by 3 1/2l.

This race is open to upsets and long-shots. Looking for the most dangerous dark horses?

KING'S ODISSEY, SPLASH OF GINGE and ROMAIN DE SENAM are all useful horses that can't be ruled out.
