Back in 2007, the athletic Kauto Star fully realised his potential when claiming his first Gold Cup but he was unable to live with Denman, nicknamed "The Tank" for very good reason, and his relentless power in the 2008 renewal.
Yet Kauto last year became the first horse in history to regain the Gold Cup crown and he is currently favourite to make it three. Since last year's battle Denman has fallen, won his second Hennessy Gold Cup and unseated his newest and current jockey, 14-times champion Tony McCoy.
Kauto Star, on the other hand, has won both his starts this season, including his fourth King George and has the assistance of Ruby Walsh, who this week entered the record books by becoming the most successful Cheltenham jockey in history.
But will it be a two-horse race once again?
Also bidding for Cheltenham glory are the tough and talented Imperial Commander, the quirky Cooldine and the Grand National-entered Tricky Trickster.
There is no doubt that the battles of Kauto Star and Denman have sparked renewed interest among the general public but theirs is a story that will also go down in history as one of the great National Hunt rivalries.
The big question, though, is who will you be on?
