Last season's Champion Hurdle hero Rock On Ruby is one of nine entries for Saturday's StanJames.com International Hurdle at Cheltenham.
Rock On Ruby will be having his first start under the name of Harry Fry, but the young trainer was credited with most of his preparation before his famous win in March.
Fry has been happy with his stable star and is excited about getting his season under way after he missed the Fighting Fifth on account on soft ground at Newcastle.
"I'm looking forward to it, I'm very lucky to have a horse of his calibre to go to war with in my first season," Fry told At The Races.
"It's exciting to be running in a race like this with a horse of his quality. He's in great order, I couldn't be happier with him so it's all systems go.
"It's only a fortnight after Newcastle and, although that was Plan A, the main target is March so what we did before Christmas was always open to interruptions from the weather. We're going to Cheltenham, we know he loves the place so we're very happy. Ciara O'Connor, who is my girlfriend and assistant, rides him every day and is very happy with him."
He will face no easy task as the 2011 Triumph Hurdle winner Zarkandar will represent Paul Nicholls, setting up a fascinating clash between master and apprentice.
Nicky Henderson also looks set to have his say as last year's winner Grandouet is due to have his first start for 12 months, after injury ruled him out of the second half of last season.
Albert Hall could represent French trainer Arnaud Chaille-Chaille while One Cool Shabra is Ireland's sole possible for Oliver Brady.
Nigel Twiston-Davies has entered both Mad Moose and Red Riverman, Rose Of The Moon could run for David O'Meara and Lawney Hill has entered Minella Theatre.
