Cheltenham Festival 2019 runners and riders: Paisley Park heads a cracking field of 18 for the Sun Racing Stayers' Hurdle

Emma Lavelle's top-class performer has swept all before him this year and is the hot favourite in the Thursday feature.

Up against him is former champion hurdler Faugheen, who represents Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh.

Supasundae, who was second to Penhill in the race 12 months ago, has been declared by Jessica Harrington.

Kilbricken Storm won last season's Albert Bartlett and will chase back-to-back Festival wins in the Stayers'.

Nicky Henderson's classy Top Notch has also been declared, as have Grade 1 winners Black Op, Sam Spinner and Yanworth.
