Triumph Hurdle favourite Adjali is among 11 entries for the Grade One Coral Finale Juvenile Hurdle at Chepstow on Thursday.

Nicky Henderson’s youngster made a very impressive British debut at Market Rasen earlier in the month and is 10-1 market leader for the Cheltenham Festival event.

Paul Nicholls’ already prolific winner Quel Destin, second in many lists for the Triumph, may take him on.

Quel Destin, winner most recently of Doncaster’s Summit Juvenile Hurdle last weekend, has won four of his eight starts over hurdles.

The Finale may also feature Keith Dalgleish’s filly Chica Buena – who took her winning sequence to four with a runaway Listed victory at Aintree this month.

Nigel Twiston-Davies’ Torpillo, owned like Adjali by Simon Munir and Isaac Souede, won by a similarly wide margin on his British debut at Sandown.

He is joined by a quartet from Gordon Elliott, all of whom – including recent Fairyhouse one-two Chief Justice and Coeur Sublime – hold a Grade Two entry at Leopardstown the previous day. Coko Beach and Flat To The Max are Elliott’s other two.

Arverne, trained in France by Adrien Lacombe for famed Irish owner JP McManus, is another eye-catching Chepstow entry.
