Michael O'Brien's In Compliance features among a 13-strong field for Wednesday's Punchestown Guinness Gold Cup.

Michael O'Brien's In Compliance features among a 13-strong field for Wednesday's Punchestown Guinness Gold Cup.

The seven-year-old was touted as a serious contender for the totesport Cheltenham Gold Cup after winning the John Durkan Memorial Punchestown Chase back in December.

However, he has not been seen since that success and faces quality rivals such as Beef Or Salmon, Monkerhostin and Racing Demon on his first attempt over three miles and one furlong.

Neptune Collonges and Kingscliff will take up the challenge for champion trainer Paul Nicholls and Robert Alner, while Hi Cloy, Watson Lake, Cloudy Bays and Sher Beau also run.

Mansony and the Willie Mullins-trained duo of Snowy Morning and Our Ben have also been declared, although those three also hold engagements on tomorrow's card.
