BOBS Worth, Long Run and Flemenstar all feature among a total of 40 entries received for the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup on March 15 at the first forfeit stage.

Lambourn trainer Nicky Henderson has a particularly strong hand, headed by ante-post favourite and Hennessy Gold Cup hero Bobs Worth, who is unbeaten in four starts at Cheltenham and has won at the last two Festivals.

The Seven Barrows handler is also set to saddle 2011 Gold Cup hero Long Run, last seen regaining his crown in a thrilling King George VI Chase.

Last season's Champion Chase victor Finian's Rainbow is also in the mix for Henderson along with Ryanair winner Riverside Theatre and Roberto Goldback.
