Hurricane Fly has stood his ground for Stan James Champion Hurdle following the latest forfeit stage but Solwhit is a notable absentee.

As expected, reigning champion Binocular takes his place in the line-up and is joined by the likes of Menorah, Peddlers Cross and Oscar Whisky in what looks set to be a vintage renewal of the hurdling showpiece.

Mille Chief, Dunguib, Khyber Kim and Overturn are other notable possibles and although Cue Card remains in the reckoning, his trainer Colin Tizzard has revealed the Supreme Novices' Hurdle is his intended target.

Celestial Halo and Tocca Ferro were scratched, leaving 28 remaining entries.
