The Gigginstown House Stud-owned five-year-old bolted up in a Naas bumper last January and could not have been more impressive on his hurdling bow at Navan a month ago.

Un Atout is a 16/1 chance for the Cheltenham Festival curtain-raiser ahead of the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Irish Racing Writers Novice Hurdle.

Champion trainer Willie Mullins said: "He's a course and distance winner in Naas, so we're happy enough to let him run there.

"We'll know a lot more about him after the race."

Un Atout's Festival credentials are likely be given a thorough examination, with Dessie Hughes' dual winner Art Of Logistics and the Charlie Swan-trained bumper scorer Tangled Web in opposition.

The six-runner field is completed by Rory O'Moore, Celtic Passion and Title Music.
