Nicky Henderson's seven-year-old finished runner-up in the Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival and is one of 21 possible runners in the Grade Two limited handicap, in which he must shoulder top weight of 11st 10lb.

Frank Berry, racing manager for owner JP McManus, said: "The plan is to run. He's been in good form since Cheltenham and Nicky can't be any happier with him.

"He's got a fair bit of weight to carry, but we are looking forward to him running if all goes well this week."

Stablemates Sign Of A Victory and Master Of The Game are also still in the shake-up.

Irish runners are, at this stage, out in full in force, with Willie Mullins having left in Upsie and Midnight Game, while the Gordon Elliott-trained Flaxen Flare is still a possible contender.

Sailors Warn could represent County Tipperary trainer Edward O'Grady, with Northern Irish handler Stuart Crawford responsible for Trucking Along.

Crawford's compatriot James Lambe still has Bertimont and Silk Hall engaged.

Others of note include Swing Bowler, Clever Cookie, Cockney Sparrow, Montbazon and the John Ferguson-trained duo of Cotton Mill and Purple Bay.
