Bank Holiday May hero Fidelio Vallis will bid for a four-timer at Warwick on Wednesday for Paul Nicholls after he was declared for the Wigley Group Carnival Handicap Chase.
The Kempton victor completed a hat-trick in the process with a win in Surrey earlier this month under Bryony Frost, landing a second win at the track after landing an event over hurdles last March.
After easy chase bows at Fontwell and Southwell, respectively, the Ditcheat six-year-old maintained his solid start to life over fences here for last year’s Champion Trainer.
He will oppose former Desert Orchid hero Bun Doran, who landed one of the feature contests at the Christmas Festival for Tom George in 2019.
Also in contention are Deyrann de Carjac, Hollywoodien Thecraicisninety and Tikkinthebox.
