Warwick entries are led by Stage Star
The eight horses competing in the Grade 2 Hampton Chase (1.50) at Warwick during the five-day stage are led by Grade 1 winner Stage Star.
The seven-year-old horse, trained by Nicholls, returned to winning ways earlier this month at Plumpton, finishing 11 lengths ahead of Mortlach.
The dependable Completely Unknown, who triumphed over seven rivals in his chasing debut at Ffos Las, may also represent the Ditcheat handler.
As the seven-year-old mare tries to get back to winning ways after pulling up in the Kauto Star at Kempton on Boxing Day, Listed Winner Galia des Liteaux has an entry for Dan Skelton.
In the Grade 2 race, Gordon Elliott might ride Minella Crooner and The Goffer, and trainer John McConnell might ride Mahler Mission to help the Irish challenge.
The eight-man field is completed by Gentleman At Arms and the City Chief, trained by Nicky Henderson.
One of the 12 horses in contention for the Grade 2 Ballymore Novices Chase at Warwick (2.25) is Grey Dawning, a winner on Kempton’s Boxing Day card.
Due to the fact that the Grade 2 Persian War was landed at Chepstow earlier in the campaign, the Accidental Rebel, trained by Fergal O’Brien, may also appear.
Iwilldoit, the winner of the Welsh Grand National in 2021, is one of 20 horses entered in the 3m5f Classic Chase (3.00).
Nestor Park, Lord Du Mesnil, Fortescue, and Threeunderthrufive all have entries and are strong contenders.
