Willie Mullins’ Deutschland, ante-post favourite for tomorrow’s Arthur Guinness Galway Hurdle, scraped into the 20-runner field by one runner.
A winner on the level, over hurdles and over fences, the six-year-old was last seen striking on the all-weather at Dundalk earlier in the month.
The Mullins family are strongly represented. Tom Mullins’ duo of Fosters Cross and Time Electric have been declared, along with the Tony Mullins-trained Decoy Daddy.
Joanna Morgan’s Raise Your Heart has been left at the head of the weights following the withdrawal of the Paul Nicholls-trained Sporazene.
Paul Nolan’s Cuan Na Grai, a former winner of the race, is joined in the line-up by stablemate See U Bob.
Vital Plot, trained by Ballybrit maestro Dermot Weld, also has major claims.
Indian Pace will have the assistance of Paul Townend, while Noel Meade runs Fisher Bridge and Silverhand.
Fingers, a winner of four of his last five races for Kevin O’Brien, and the Tony Martin pair of Northern Alliance and Stage Manager are other intriguing contenders.
