The Gigginstown House Stud-owned gelding has impressed in his two starts over obstacles this season and is the general second-favourite for the Festival curtain-raiser behind compatriot Jezki.
Trainer Willie Mullins did have the option of running his charge in this weekend's Deloitte Novice Hurdle, but said:
"He'll go straight to Cheltenham now I think."
The five-year-old was most recently seen at Naas last month, where he slammed Rory O'Moore by 19 lengths.
