More declared for Cheltenham
More Of That and Frodon star amongst 19 runners declared for the BetVictor Gold Cup at Cheltenham on Saturday.
More Of That will line up on Saturday
Jonjo O'Neill's 2014 World Hurdle hero More Of That made a flying start to his career over fences when claiming successive victories at Prestbury Park last season, but could only finish third when a hot favourite for the RSA Chase at the Festival.
With the required rain having fallen during the week, the JP McManus-owned eight-year-old will make his first start since in this weekend's feature event.
The Jackdaws Castle handler is also represented by Taquin Du Seuil.
The Paul Nicholls-trained Frodon has won each of his three starts this season and turns out just seven days after finishing alone in the Rising Stars Novices' Chase at Wincanton.
The champion trainer also saddles Art Mauresque, Bouvreuil and As De Mee in a bid to win the prestigious contest for a third time.
With Top Gamble not featuring in the final field, the David Pipe-trained Ballynagour now heads the weights.
Last year's one-two, Annacotty and Buywise, are also in the hat, as are leading contenders Double Shuffle, Village Vic and Stilletto.
The only defectors along with Top Gamble were Johnny Og and Full Shift.
