Barry Geraghty is looking forward to riding Cash And Go in Saturday's Betfair Hurdle at Newbury.
Trainer Nicky Henderson has six runners in the weekend showpiece and his stable jockey will be aboard the former Irish-trained six-year-old who unseated rider at Ascot last time after a promising debut for the yard.
"I was unseated at Ascot but before that he had a good run at Cheltenham where he finished in front of Cause And Causes so the form looks good," the jockey told At The Races.
Henderson is responsible for favourite My Tent Or Yours who is the ride of owner JP McManus' retained rider Tony McCoy. Geraghty admits he will be hard to beat.
"He has the right profile for the race but is a short price in a very competitive race. He's a worthy favourite but it is a tough race," he added.
Simonsig, unbeaten in two races over fences. could also be in action in the Game Spirit Chase on the same card and the jockey said: "I haven't spoken to Nicky but this was the plan from before so I'd imagine it's still the case. He was brilliant both days at Ascot and Kempton, foot perfect. He's an exciting one."
