Willie Mullins has confirmed ante-post favourite Felix Yonger will be joined by stable companions Djakadam and Mozoltov in Thursday's JLT Novices' Chase at Cheltenham.

Felix Yonger has victories at Punchestown and Navan to his credit this season and filled the runner-up spot on his last two appearances at Limerick and Leopardstown.

Djakadam has looked the part in winning his two starts over fences, while Mozoltov was a bloodless winner on his latest start at Naas.

Mullins said: "Djakadam has travelled over and is an intended runner on Thursday.

"With Felix Yonger and Mozoltov as well, hopefully we'll have the three runners."

Asked which horse stable jockey Ruby Walsh will ride, Mullins said: "I'm not sure. That hasn't been decided yet."
