Big guns hold sway in Triumph Hurdle
ALL the major ante-post fancies are among 21 acceptors for the JCB Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival on Friday.
The Dessie Hughes-trained Our Conor, Paul Nicholls' Far West and Nicky Henderson's Rolling Star are the three main market fancies and all appear.
As well as Our Conor the Irish challenge could be also supplemented by Willie Mullins' Blood Cotil and Diakali, among others.
Gary Moore's Chris Pea Green, the John Quin duo of Kashmir Peak and Hidden Justice and John Ferguson's Grade One winner Ruacana are all there.
Nicholls has also left in Lac Fontana and Sametegal while Henderson could also run Vasco Du Ronceray.
