Cheltenham Festival 2019 runners and riders: Gordon Elliott's Dallas Des Pictons heads up a field of 24 for the Martin Pipe

The progressive six-year-old arrives seeking a hat-trick and is as short as 4-1 for the Festival finale.

Early Doors will carry top-weight and he is JP McManus's only runner in the £70,000 race.

Gordon Elliott runs Cartwright and Defi Bleu alongside Dallas Des Pictons.

Pym won nicely at Kempton and represents Nicky Henderson, while Acapella Bourgeois looks nicely treated for Willie Mullins.

The in-form trio Big Time Dancer, Daybreak Boy and Doctor Dex have also been declared.
