Min heads Supreme declarations

Min will bid to give Willie Mullins the perfect start to the 2016 Cheltenham Festival when he faces 13 rivals in the Sky Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle.

Mullins has won the opening race of the Festival for the last three years with Champagne Fever, Vautour and Douvan all taking the honours and the County Carlow handler will saddle three runners as he looks to make it four-in-a-row.

Warm favourite Min is joined in the race by Bellshill and Petit Mouchoir, although Mullins has elected to withdraw Yorkhill at the final declaration stage.

Dermot Weld saddles Silver Concorde alongside the Gordon Elliott-trained Tombstone and Henry de Bromhead's Supasundae, while Dan Skelton is double-handed with Muster Miyagii and North Hill Harvey both set to take their chance.

Nicky Henderson has not won the Supreme since 1992 and will be hoping either Altior or Buveur D'Air can end his poor run.

Elsewhere, there are just seven runners in the Racing Post Arkle Trophy.

Douvan won the Supreme Novices' Hurdle 12 months ago and is the hot favourite to land another Festival win.

Sizing John could has stood his ground for Henry De Bromhead, while The Game Changer will take his chance for Gordon Elliott.

Nicky Henderson has taken out L'Ami Serge, but he still has Vaniteux entered.

Neil Mulholland is double-handed with both Baltimore Rock and Fox Norton entered as Aso completes the small field.

Meanwhile, Vroum Vroum Mag heads the 20 runners still engaged in the OBLG Mares' Hurdle.

Willie Mullins' charge is unbeaten in eight starts and heads the betting for the Grade 1 after stable companion Annie Power was re-routed to the Stan James Champion Hurdle.
