More Of That heads Liverpool Hurdle entries

WORLD HURDLE hero More Of That could have his next outing at Aintree on Saturday, as the unbeaten six-year-old featured among 12 entries for the Grade 1 Silver Cross Stayers' Hurdle.

Victorious in each of his five career starts, the Jonjo O'Neill-trained More Of That could take on some of the rivals he downed at the Cheltenham Festival, with At Fishers Cross (third), Zarkandar (fourth), Rule The World (sixth) and Salubrious (ninth) all entered.

Other festival form on offer for the race, which is registered as the Liverpool Hurdle, include Coral Cup winner Whisper and Attaglance, who was regarded as an unlucky loser by some when finishing runner-up to Present View.

For the Grade 1 Doom Bar Maghull Novices' Chase, the Arkle form could be tested, with Trifolium (third), Dodging Bullets (fourth), Grandouet (sixth) and Brick Red (seventh) among the 14 entries.

Apache Stronghold, who has not been seen since missing a Grade 1 novice hurdle at Navan, could be back in action for Noel Meade in the Grade 1 Pertemps Network Mersey Novice's Hurdle, which also features County Hurdle winner Lac Fontana and the progressive Kayf Moss.

Nigel Twiston-Davies won the Grade 2 bumper which concludes the meeting two years ago with The New One, and he has entered Ballybolley this year, who is unbeaten in his two bumper runs.

Champion Bumper runner-up Shaneshill is also among 29 entries for the race.
