Willie Mullins has given himself plenty of options in Friday's Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.
Ireland's champion trainer has one of the ante-post favourites in Ballycasey and has also left in his Supreme Novices' Hurdle candidate Un Atout, red-hot Neptune favourite Pont Alexandre and last year's bumper winner Champagne Fever.
Mozoltov and Inish Island are others options for Mullins while Noel Meade's Road To Riches, Charles Byrnes' Our Vinnie and Henry De Bromhead's Sizing Gold give Ireland a strong hand.
At Fishers Cross is leading the home defence for Welsh trainer Rebecca Curtis.
African Gold, Cloudy Copper, Gevrey Chambertin, who could run in the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys' Hurdle on the same day, Coneygree and Utopie Des Bordes are also among the remaining possibles.
Jonjo O'Neill's Neptune-bound Taquin De Seuill was the biggest absentee.
