Cheltenham Festival 2019 runners and riders: Arkle runners declared as Lalor heads final field of 12

Kayley Woollacott's chaser is a general 7-2 chance for the Grade 1 contest.

Disputing favouritism alongside the seven-year-old is Mick Channon's Glen Forsa, last seen thrashing Kalashnikov – who has also been declared for the race by trainer Amy Murphy.

The front-running Knocknanuss bolsters a strong British challenge for Gary Moore, as does the supplemented Clondaw Castle and Colin Tizzard's Slate House.

The well-backed Hardline is likely to be Ireland's main hope for trainer Gordon Elliott, while Willie Mullins relies on Duc Des Genievres.

Articulum, Paloma Blue, Ornua and Us And Them complete the field.
