The Venetia Williams-trained winner of the Sky Bet Supreme Trial was among 42 horses scratched from the contest.

Willie Mullins retains a predictably strong hand among those remaining, being responsible for nine of the field, including the sponsors' 11/4 favourite Vautour.

The trainer confirmed on Wednesday that Vautour, Wicklow Brave and Valseur Lido are all at present intended starters in the race.

Paul Nicholls is responsible for second-favourite Irving, along with Fascino Rustico and Lac Fontana, while his British trainers' title rival Nicky Henderson has left in Cup Final, a possible starter in Saturday's Dovecote Hurdle at Kempton, Tolworth Hurdle winner Josses Hill, Stand To Reason and Vaniteux.

David Pipe, who has a particularly strong-looking team for the Festival novice hurdles this year, is responsible for Dell' Arca, Diamond Life, Pleasant Company, The Liquidator, Vieux Lion Rouge and Volt Face.
