Noel Meade’s charge is one of three possibilities for Ireland’s champion trainer, who can also choose from Gem Daly and Sigma Digital.

Meade won the Grade One event 12 months ago with Aran Concerto.

Tony Mullins will be looking for his second big-race win of the season with the highly-regarded Decoy Daddy.

Willie Mullins has the option of Uncle Junior, winner of his last three starts, and Cuchulains Son.

Jessica Harrington’s Glenrock Leader and Dermot Weld’s Majestic Concorde are also among the 12 entries for the race.

Made In Taipan, Rhacophorus, Stewarts House and the unbeaten Trafford Lad complete the line-up.
