Given a break since then, the son of Sir Percy will make his return and bid for another Graded success in the 2m contest and enhance his status as one of Britain's leading contenders for the Triumph Hurdle next month, which could include Porticello.

He could also come up against the formidable Gordon Elliott-trained pair Pied Piper and Fil Dor in the Triumph, as well as impressive Grade 1 winner Vauban and the Dan Skelton-trained Doctor Parnassus.

Harris said: "His prep has gone really well and we're where we should be going into a competitive race. He doesn't appreciate winter soft ground, he's a much better horse on decent ground. Some of these horses haven't had a break, but we've aimed ourselves solely at this. He's the favourite in the right race."

He added: "I'd be surprised if we weren't a sharper horse than Porticello. We are what price we are, but what matters is if all goes well on Saturday, it'll be off to Cheltenham then Aintree. They're our ultimate goals for the season."
