The eight-year-old gelding is a notoriously bad worker at his home in Wales, but is unbeaten in five starts over fences and looked most impressive at Sandown earlier this month.

"We'll be running him at Cheltenham," said trainer Evan Williams.

"Because of the snow, he's only been going round in circles on the sand so I've not had to go through the embarrassment of watching him work.

"We've never had a horse like this that works so deplorably, yet shows such a high level of form on the track.

"He's a very healthy little horse who has looked a picture this year."
