Irish runners dominate the antepost betting for the William Hill Supreme Novices' Hurdle and big guns Jezki and Un Atout are among a bumper entry of 30 from Ireland within the total of 94.

Jessica Harrington's Jezki has won all four starts over timber, the last two in top-class company, and heads the ante-post betting from Un Atout, unbeaten in three starts for Willie Mullins and one of seven entries from the yard.

Nicky Henderson has 13 horses listed among the entries, among whom River Maigue and My Tent Or Yours feature prominently in the betting. The latter remains among the market leaders for the Betfair Hurdle at Newbury in February.

The exciting Oliver Sherwood-trained Puffin Billy has an entry, as do four runners from Paul Nicholls' yard, with Dodging Bullets his most likely candidate on evidence seen so far. The quartet are completed by Sidney Melbourne and juvenile hurdlers Irish Saint and Sametegal.

One of the more surprising entries is 2011 Champion Bumper winner Cheltenian, who has been absent since while, as suggested following a Kempton bumper win, there's an entry for Fair Trade, one of four Alan King horses among the list.
