Concertista claimed her first victory over hurdles in the Mares' Novices' Hurdle last season. After winning both her starts this term, Willie Mullins' mare has risen to the top of the market with Paddy Power.
Her main challenger looks to be Roksana, who won this race two years ago. Dan Skelton has rerouted his stable star from the Stayers' Hurdle, and could serve up a stiff challenge to the market leader on day one of the Cheltenham Festival.
Dame De Compagnie beat Black Tears in the Coral Cup last season, and both look set to enter this Grade One this time around. Willie Mullins could also throw Great White Shark and My Sister Sarah into the Mares' Hurdle.
2020 Martin Pipe winner, Indefatigable could make her Grade One debut. Floressa, Minella Melody, Dolcita, Whitehotchillifili and Anythingforlove also featured in the seven-day entries.
