Date: Thursday, March 17
Entries: Alaphilippe, Aspire Tower, Asterion Forlonge, Buveur D’Air, Champ, Cilaos Emery, Commander Of Fleet, Darver Star, Flooring Porter, Garo De Juilley, Gentlemansgame, Goshen, Grand Roi, Home By The Lee, Klassical Dream, Koshari, Lisnagar Oscar, McFabulous, Melon, Mr Adjudicator, Paisley Park, Santini, Sire Du Berlais, Song For Someone, Sporting John, Third Wind, Thomas Darby, Thyme Hill, Burning Victory, Indefatigable, Molly Ollys Wishes, My Sister Sarah, Royal Kahala
Flooring Porter will bid to become the first horse since Big Buck’s in 2012 to defend the crown but Gavin Cromwell’s charge has to reverse the form with Willie Mullins’ antepost favourite Klassical Dream after a controversial defeat at Leopardstown over Christmas.
Former winners Paisley Park and Lisnagar Oscar are also on the entry list, while Nicky Henderson has a couple of interesting entries – dual Champion Hurdle hero Buveur D’Air and Gold Cup prospect Champ.
Date: Tuesday, March 15
Entries: Abacadabras, Adagio, Appreciate It, Aspire Tower, Buveur D’Air, Cask Mate, Glory And Fortune, Goshen, Monmiral, My Mate Mozzie, Not So Sleepy, Qulixios, Saint Felicien, Saint Roi, Sharjah, Song For Someone, Teahupoo, Tommy’s Oscar, Tritonic, Zanahiyr, Echoes In Rain, Epatante, Honeysuckle
The seemingly unbeatable Honeysuckle is the odds-on favourite to defend her title in the championship race on the opening day of the meeting. Sharjah is set to renew the rivalry after finishing second last year, while Willie Mullins could also pitch Supreme Novices’ Hurdle winner Appreciate It into the mix.
2020 champ Epatante looked back to her best when winning the Christmas Hurdle at Kempton and is set to lead the British charge along with Not So Sleepy, who she dead-heated with in this season’s Fighting Fifth.
