Trainer Rebecca Curtis will resist the urge to run At Fishers Cross before the Ladbrokes World Hurdle.

The JP McManus-owned seven-year-old banished memories of two awful displays at Ascot and Newbury with a close-up second in the Cleeve Hurdle at Cheltenham in January.

He will now be kept on ice until the Cheltenham Festival in March.

Curtis said: "He ran great in the Cleeve and is definitely coming back to as good as he was.

"He has improved so much since Ascot, but he won't be going anywhere before Cheltenham. We'll freshen him up at home and that should put him bang-on."
