Capitaine is one of 11 potential runners in the 32Red Tolworth Novices’ Hurdle at Sandown on Saturday.
The Paul Nicholls-trained five-year-old made a successful start to his jumping career at Wincanton in early November and while he was beaten in a Listed event at Haydock, he bounced back to win the Grade Two Sky Bet Supreme Trial Novices’ Hurdle at Ascot in December.
Nicky Henderson has saddled four of the last six Tolworth winners and has a couple of contenders for this year’s renewal in Gaitway and Kayf Grace.
The latter won a Grade Two bumper at Aintree last spring and scored with plenty in hand on her hurdling debut at Bangor.
Charlemar could bid for his third win from as many starts since joining Harry Whittington and most recently impressed under a penalty in a novice event at Aintree.
Chalonnial looks an exciting prospect for Harry Fry and highly-rated Flat performer Celestial Path may be thrown in at the deep end on his National Hunt bow for David Pipe.
Finian’s Oscar, a £250,000 purchase for Colin Tizzard, looked the part on his first start under rules at Hereford.
Ballyhill, Global Stage, Man From Mars and Mohaayed complete the entries.
Meanwhile, Superb Story is set to head straight to the Cheltenham Festival following his comeback victory at Musselburgh on New Year’s Day.
The six-year-old was raced sparingly last season, filling the runner-up spot in the Greatwood Hurdle at Cheltenham in November before running out an impressive winner of the County Hurdle at Prestbury Park in March.
He was pulled up when considered a leading contender for the Galway Hurdle during the summer, but showed his true colours in Scotland and given he seems at his best when fresh, trainer Dan Skelton is keen to save his charge for the showpiece meeting in the spring, with the Champion Hurdle a potential target.
