Whisper set for Cheltenham run
Whisper is set to be the chosen representative from Nicky Henderson's three entries in the Ryman Novices' Chase at Cheltenham on Saturday.
Whisper is set to run over fences on Saturday
The dual Grade One winning hurdler had one start over fences in the 2014/15 season, finishing second to Caesar Milan at Exeter, before successfully reverting to hurdles.
The eight-year-old failed to reproduce his best form in three runs over timber last season and is now set for another attempt over the larger obstacles.
He is one of 14 entries for the two and a half mile contest and one of three from his Lambourn yard.
Henderson could also be represented by O O Seven, who took the Steel Plate And Sections Novices' Chase by 10 lengths at The Open, and easy Ascot victor Different Gravey.
"Whisper is likely to run in the Ryman Novices' Chase, while I also have O O Seven and Different Gravey," said Henderson.
"Whisper is in good form and obviously has done well at Cheltenham.
"O O Seven could miss the race for Ascot or Kempton Park. Different Gravey may join Whisper in running."
Other notable entries include Baron Alco, Rock The Kasbah and Frodon who is also engaged in the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup.
