Twelve remain in tact for Saturday's Grade Two Patrick Coyne Memorial Altcar Novices Chase at Haydock.
The distance to be covered is just over 2m3f, which should be right up the street of Ben Pauling's Kildisart. the 7y0 just prevailed at Ascot just days before Christmas in a graduation chase.
Chopping off two furlongs should definitely suit, for a horse who was also successful at Kempton last March.
Pauling also Le Breuil, who has been amongst the thick of things this term. In four appearances, he is yet to finish outside the top three, including an excellent second to Count Meribel in a Class Two Novices Chase back in November.
Colin Tizzard has three chances - two of which in the colours of Ann and Alan Potts Ltd - New To This Town and Pingshou.
Last year's Gold Cup winning trainer also has Slate House, who was a solid novice hurdle, sadly falling at the last when running a strong race in the Supreme at last year's Festival.
On his chasing debut, he finished fourth to French raider Master Dino at Plumpton, which looks some of the best form on paper from a novice of the season.
Philip Hobbs has Jerrysback, who was second at Ascot to another strong looking novice - Vinndication, can move a step further on, having won at odds at 50/1 at Bangor earlier on in the campaign.
Scorpion Sid, Go Long and Crucial Role will all look to follow up their most recent victories.
