Denise Foster could throw two of her top novice chasers into this handicap, with Farclas sitting just ahead of Conflated in the market. Joseph O'Brien has two first-season chasers sitting prominently in the market too, and both A Wave Of The Sea and Fils D'Oudairies are likely to take their chance.
The Shunter remains in the Paddy Power Plate betting, and Emmet Mullins will soon have to settle on which of the five races he's entered into will be his chosen target.
The leading British hope is Caribean Boy for Nicky Henderson. Recent Greatwood Gold Cup winner, Umbrigado could attempt to land his fourth win on the bounce, while Mister Whitaker and Fanion D'Estruval also seem likely runners.
Other possible runners on day three of the Cheltenham Festival include Midnight Shadow, Oldgrangewood, Smarty Wild, Admirals Secret and Sully D'Oc AA.
