Hurricane Fly heads a field of just six possibles for the Ladbrokes.com Morgiana Hurdle at Punchestown on Sunday.
Willie Mullins’ star performer has won his last six starts, including Champion Hurdles in England and Ireland.
He bids to take his run to seven in the Grade One over two miles, with his potential rivals including stable companions So Young and Thousand Stars.
Jessica Harrington has left in Oscars Well, who is expected to improve for his reappearance at Down Royal earlier this month.
Charles Byrnes, whose Solwhit has taken on Hurricane Fly several times, will try to overturn the likely red-hot favourite with Pittoni.
The five-year-old has won his last four races but is taking a big step up in class.
Voler La Vedette and Unaccompanied, both winners in the last week, were taken out at the confirmation stage. The only other absentee was Canaly leaving Akatara to complete the field.
