Dynaste bids to follow in the hoofprints of his smart stablemate Grands Crus as he attempts to make a winning debut over fences in the Steel Plate And Sections Novices' Chase at Cheltenham.
Like Grands Crus, who is a leading fancy for the Paddy Power Gold Cup on Saturday, he had top form in staying hurdles, including when finishing second to the brilliant Big Buck's in January.
He is reported to have taken to fences well at home and his trainer David Pipe is expecting a good effort from the six-year-old.
The Nicholashayne handler said: "He's in good form, he's schooled nicely. It's a hot race, but there aren't that many runners. It's a nice introduction for him. We're looking forward to it."
Fingal Bay was a classy staying novice hurdler for the Philip Hobbs team last season and got off the mark over fences at Chepstow five weeks ago.
His rider Richard Johnson said: "I'm looking forward to it. It was nice he won the last day. He was good first time out and hopefully he well run very well again. He seems in good form."
Jonjo O'Neill expects Thehillofuisneach to show improvement from his chasing bow at Exeter last month, his first run since the Festival in March.
The trainer said: "He was a grand horse last year, won his hurdle races and surprised us how well he went, and he looked an all right horse at the end of the day. He ran and jumped well at Exeter until he got tired. He'll be much better and fitter and we hope he'll put up a good show."
Carlito Brigante won over the Cheltenham fences three weeks ago and his trainer Gordon Elliott is hoping the six-year-old's love of the track will stand him in good stead.
He said: "The better the ground for him. It looks a very competitive race, so if he can run a nice race and pick up a bit of prize-money we'd be delighted. He likes Cheltenham, so hopefully he'll go well."
