The former has won his last two starts at Grade One level and will aim to complete the hat-trick in the Deloitte Novice Hurdle.

Last Instalment, a dual Grade One winner over fences as a novice a couple of seasons ago before spending almost two years on the sidelines, made an encouraging return to action at Thurles last month and is bound for the Hennessy Gold Cup.

Fenton said: "I'm very happy with both horses and they are both on track for Sunday.

"They both worked separately this morning over 10 furlongs with their own companions.

"I was very pleased with The Tulllow Tank, although he doesn't take a huge amount of work anyway.

"Last Instalment put in some grand work and I was satisfied with him.

"He had a good blow and I'm sure he'll improve for the run."
