The New One goes International
The New One, a two-times winner of the stanjames.com International Hurdle, is among 10 entries for the Grade Two contest at Cheltenham on Saturday.
The New One could line up on Saturday
The eight-year-old, successful in 2013 and 2014, was to have made his chasing debut at Exeter last week.
However, when that meeting was lost to the weather, trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies named this race as a possible starting point.
Last year's winner Old Guard features again for trainer Paul Nicholls, while Yanworth is a fascinating contender.
The Alan King-trained six-year-old was a top novice last term and got the campaign off to a winning start in the Coral Hurdle at Ascot last month.
Yanworth's owner JP McManus also has the Nicky Henderson-trained pair of My Tent Or Yours and Hargam.
Willie Mullins has put in Ivan Grozny, whose last two wins over jumps have both come at Tipperary. The six-year-old, owned by Andrea and Graham Wylie, ran out a ready winner of the Istabraq Hurdle on his latest start.
There is a second Irish entry in Gordon Elliott's Labaik, who refused to race in the Royal Bond Novice Hurdle at Fairyhouse on Sunday.
Melodic Rendezvous, Court Minstrel and Mister Miyagi make up the 10 entries.
