Gordon Elliott's Death Duty casts a large shadow over the other 102 entries for the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham on March 17.
The six-year-old has progressed through the ranks this season, winning all four of his outings over hurdles, stepping up in class each time and culminating in a Grade One win at Naas.
He is one of 10 entries for Elliott in a race he came close to winning last year with Fagan.
Wholestone has been a Cheltenham regular this season and is likely to be back again for Nigel Twiston-Davies and he could meet his old foe West Approach, trained by Colin Tizzard.
Let's Dance is a possible for Willie Mullins who also has the likes of Invitation Only and Penhill engaged.
Constantine Bay and No Hassle Hoff, who fought out the finish to the River Don at Doncaster, could meet again with former classy Flat performer Windshear also given the option by new trainer Sophie Leach.
