High-class hurdler had been mixing it at the top level over fences this season at shorter trips before third chase win when dropped in grade at Ayr 10 days ago, patiently ridden and seeing the 3m out well when giving away lumps of weight in novice handicap; drying ground should help his cause and not one to rule out.

J: Paul Townend

T: W P Mullins

Top-class hurdler who has shown a good level of form over fences, banging his head against a wall in Grade 1s in his last four appearances; finished fourth in last season's County Hurdle in his last handicap assignment and that was off an 8lb higher mark; may run well, though stamina could be an issue on this belated first run beyond 2m4f.

Similar profile to Zanahiyr, having performed well in two Champion Hurdles (runner-up in 2020 and 2021); has shown a good level of form over fences, including Grade 3 success over 2m4f, but subsequent Grade 1 defeats reinforce the unlikelihood of a belated first Cheltenham Festival success now aged 11; no horse older than eight has won this contest.

Six-time Grade 1 winner over hurdles with four of those victories gained in this venue's 2m Matheson Hurdle; latecomer to chasing; won readily over 2m2f at Galway; jumped well when landing 2m4f Grade 3 event at Tipperary in effortless fashion; found nothing off the bridle in the Drinmore; in front of a below-par Facile Vega when third to Found A Fifty at Christmas.
