McCoy. McManus and O'Neill: Will team up with Alfie Sherrin

Tony McCoy will partner Alfie Sherrin in his bid to land the Baylis & Harding Affordable Luxury Handicap Chase for the second time.

The 2012 winner of the race when it was known as the JLT Handicap Chase, Alfie Sherrin was fourth in the Kim Muir at last season's Festival, but has made just one appearance this season, finishing fourth to Gevrey Chambertin in the Brush Hurdle Final at Haydock.

With McCoy opting to ride Alfie Sherrin for Jonjo O'Neill, Robert Thornton partners top-weight Cantlow, also in the colours of JP McManus.

Another former winner of the race, last year's hero Golden Chieftain, is in the contest, along with other Cheltenham Festival regulars such as Fruity O'Rooney - second to Alfie Sherrin two years ago and fifth last year - and The Package, fourth behind Alfie Sherrin and second back in 2010.

Leading fancy Hadrian's Approach will be partnered by Barry Geraghty with Nico De Boinville taking 5lb from stablemate Ma Filleule, Richard Johnson is on board Ackertac for Tim Vaughan, while Davy Russell is an eyecatching booking for Sue Smith's Yorkshire raider Vintage Gold.

Holywell, a stablemate of Alfie Sherrin, will be partnered by Richie McLernon on his first start in handicap company over fence, while Paul Nicholls' sole representative is Pacha Du Polder.

The field is completed by Vino Griego, Restless Harry, Green Flag, Renard, Shakalakaboomboom, Relax, Time For Rupert, Muldoon's Picnic, Wrong Turn, Standing Ovation, King Massini, Tour Des Champs, Solix.

Eliminations: Vitrix Gale, Tullamore Dew, Aachen, Living Next Door.
