Ian Williams is hopeful of a good showing from Bambi De L'Orme on his first run for six months at Cheltenham today.
The six-year-old, last seen beating River City by a neck at Warwick in May, is among ten horses declared for the Beards Jewellers Cup (Handicap Chase).
"He's summered well and come back in great form," said the Portway trainer.
"He's never run off a mark as high as this (138). Tomorrow will gives us a good idea where we will go with him and hopefully he'll progress throughout the season.
"Good to soft would be all right for him.
"But he wouldn't want it much wetter. I'm very hopeful of a good run." In the race, the weights are headed on 11st 12lb by last year's winner Armaturk who - along with Andreas - represents Somerset trainer Paul Nicholls.
