Trainer Venetia Williams and her Gold Cup hopeful Teeton Mill (above) are right on target for Festival glory - and she nominated the Irish-trained favourite Florida Pearl as the main danger to her grey.

She said: ``The horse is fine. He will just be doing the same as I usually do with him over the next two weeks. We will try not to do anything different, and keep him in one piece.''

Quizzed as to Teeton Mill's chief rivals Williams responded: ``Obviously there is the Irish horse, Florida Pearl.

``He is unbeaten in the races he has completed and hasn't been fully extended.

``But over the last few years the race has had a habit of throwing up surprises. I remember being annoyed when I rode in a hunter chase at Chepstow and was beaten by a former Welsh point-to-pointer, who turned out to be Norton's Coin!''
