Hennessy winner Triolo D'Alene is the headline name amongst 12 entries for Saturday's Argento Chase at Cheltenham.

Nicky Henderson's seven-year-old rocketed 11lb in the handicap to a mark of 158 following his near three-length beating of Rocky Creek, who is set to reoppose for Paul Nicholls.

Nicholls has another string to his bow in Unioniste, although he is also engaged in the Sky Bet Chase at Doncaster, with Alan King's Walkon and the Paul Webber-trained Time For Rupert also entered in both races.

Kim Bailey's Charlie Hall winner Harry Topper is also entered along with the Colin Tizzard-trained Theatre Guide.

Champion Court was last seen chasing home Captain Chris at Kempton earlier in the month and could take his chance, while The Giant Bolster may return to the track where he has twice placed in the Gold Cup.

Venetia Williams' Houblon Des Obeaux, Pigeon Island from Nigel Twiston-Davies' yard and Robin Dickin's Restless Harry complete the possibles.
