Zaidpour gets the chance to keep his lofty reputation intact when tackling the Bar One Racing Royal Bond Novice Hurdle at Fairyhouse.
Injury meant the French import never saw a racecourse during his first season with Willie Mullins, but he seemed intent on making up for lost time when making a most impressive hurdling debut at Punchestown last month.
He faces just five rivals on this step up to Grade One company, including Tom Cooper’s The Sheperd King, who also made a winning hurdling debut at Galway recently.
Paul Nolan runs Carloswayback, Noel Meade saddles Perfect Smile and Philip Fenton is represented by course and distance winner Pineau De Re.
Mount Helicon completes the select field.
