More Of That's Cheltenham Festival target could depend on how At Fishers Cross fares against Big Buck's in Saturday's Cleeve Hurdle

"We're aiming him at Cheltenham but as yet I'm not sure what race it will be for.I suppose it depends on how At Fishers Cross gets on this weekend in the Cleeve."

Jonjo O'Neill's More Of That has appeared from nowhere this season, winning a lowly handicap at Wetherby, a valuable event at Haydock and then the Relkeel Hurdle at Cheltenham.

That performance sparked dreams of a World Hurdle bid but with Rebecca Curtis' Albert Bartlett winner At Fishers Cross in the same JP McManus ownership, it appears only one of the two will run in that race.

"More Of That is just having a break at the moment," said O'Neill.

"We're aiming him at Cheltenham but as yet I'm not sure what race it will be for.I suppose it depends on how At Fishers Cross gets on this weekend in the Cleeve."

"After this weekend, we'll all have a chat I'd imagine and then we'll know a bit more."
