Rock heads International possibles

Current champion hurdler Rock On Ruby is one of nine entries for Saturday's International Hurdle at Cheltenham.

Rock On Ruby will be having his first start under the name of Harry Fry but the young trainer was credited with most of his preparation before his famous win.

He will face no easy task as the 2011 Triumph Hurdle winner Zarkandar will represent Paul Nicholls, setting up a fascinating clash between master and apprentice.

Nicky Henderson also looks set to have his say as last year's winner Grandouet is due to have his first start for 12 months, after injury ruled him out of the second half of the season.

Albert Hall could represent French trainer Arnaud Chaille-Chaille while One Cool Shabra is Ireland's sole possible for Oliver Brady.

Nigel Twiston-Davies has entered both Mad Moose and Red Riverman, Rose Of The Moon could run for David O'Meara and Lawney Hill has entered Minella Theatre.
