Saint Sam still holds an entry in the Triumph Hurdle, but there's a strong chance Willie Mullins' charge could drop into handicap company. Saint Sam has been joined at the head of the market by Houx Gris, who's been backed in from 25s to 9/2 in the last ten days.
Another big market mover is Dermot Weld's Coltor, who sits third in the current betting. Busselton and Riviere D'etel are also fancied to run well on day one of the Cheltenham Festival.
Cabot Cliff could run for Dan Skelton, while top-weight Nassalam could fly the flag for Gary Moore. Balko Saint, Hell Red and Homme Public could bolster the British challenge in the Boodles.
Willie Mullins has also handed an entry to Youmdor, while Denise Foster could saddle Glorious Zoff. Druid's Altar, Zoffanien and Curious Bridge also feature in the entries.
