Bob Olinger has been one of the most talked-about horses at virtual Cheltenham preview evenings, and Henry De Bromhead's charge has risen to the top of the market. Gaillard Du Mesnil and Bravemansgame are not without support, though, and both featured in the entries.
Bear Ghylls has been the best-backed outside the top three in the betting, and Nicky Martin's charge will take his chance. Adrimel could run for Tom Lacey, with Grumpy Charley, Does He Know, Ballybegg and Castle Robin also featuring in the field.
Appreciate It, Blue Lord and Keskonrisk will run in the Supreme. Ganapathi will likely drop into a handicap. Possible Irish runners here include N'golo, M C Muldoon and Galopin Des Champs.
One True King, Optimise Prime and Khan round off the 19-strong list of entries for the opener on day two of the Cheltenham Festival.
