Nicky Henderson's charge is two-from-two since being switched to fences following wins over hurdles at both Cheltenham and Aintree last year.

Former Champion Hurdle runner-up Overturn is also unbeaten over fences and he stands his ground for Donald McCain, while Paul Nicholls' French import Fago gets an entry after his impressive debut for the yard at Newbury.

Tetlami and Captain Conan complete Henderson's team while Willie Mullins has nine entered, including Arvika Ligeonniere, who beat fellow entry Oscars Well last time out.
